Happy the Man: a Christian prayer of unalloyed devotion


Happy the Man

Happy the man who wanders with the Lord
Happy the man who knows how to live
Happy the man who never seeks reward
Giving because he likes to give

He seeks no gold, he wants no gain
He knows these things all in vain
He needs no praise, nor honour too
His only motto: ‘To your own self be true’

Happy the man who learned how to pray
Happy the man who has a living goal
Happy the man whose service needs no pay
This man has found his own soul
Happy the man, happy the man of the Lord
