Hymn No. 94

Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
YE 1 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,        5
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,        10
Joy to win his welcome grace,
Joy to see Him face to face.
Note 1. Ch. Wesley. This is hymn No. 94 in the Yattendon hymnal. ‘It is made of two stanzas which occur separately in Chas. Wesley’s Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures. 1794. The first stanza is 1260, Zephaniah, ii. 3; the second is 702, Job, xxxiii. 26. They are here slightly altered.’ Y.H. [back]
