The happy Man

Happy the man whose will is bow'd

Published in 4 hymnals

Full Text

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.
