Original text and translations
Ye that do your Master’s will,
Meek in heart, be meeker still:
Day by day your sins confess,
Ye that walk in righteousness:
Gracious souls in grace abound,
Seek the Lord whom ye have found.
He that comforts all that mourn
Shall to joy your sorrow turn:
Joy to know your sins forgiven,
Joy to keep the way of heaven,
Joy to win His grace,
Joy to see Him face to face.
