1 Happy the man, who poor and low,
Less goodness in himself conceives
Than Christ doth of His servant know,
Who saved from self-reflection lives,
Unconscious of the grace bestowed,
Simply resigned, and lost in God.
2 Himself he cannot perfect call,
Or to the meanest saint prefer,
Meanest himself, and least of all:
And when the glorious character
His spotless soul with Christ receives,
His fate—to that great day he leaves.
