A Good Conscience a Source of Joy

Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world. 2 Cor. 1:12

O happy soul, that lives on high,
While men lie grovelling here;
Whose hopes are fix'd above the sky,
And faith forbids his fear.

His conscience cleans'd from all his sins,
Love, peace, and joy combine
To form a life whose holy springs
Are hidden and divine.
