1 Happy the man whose will is bowed
And spirit duly awed--
Who is resigned in heart and mind,
Unto the will of God.
2 Happy the man that humble is,
And doth not one disdain,
That ne'er envies nor doth despise
One of his fellow men.
3 Happy the man that wears Christ's yoke,
And has a lowly mind;
Who is not easily provoked,
Great peace then he shall find.
4 Happy the man that is not moved,
With all the ups and downs;
Of this vain world but lives above
Its flatteries and frowns.
5 Happy the man that's winged with faith,
Whose heart is fixed with love--
who ran and fled to take the prize,
That is laid up above.
