The evil-doer sorrows
Here and hereafter
He suffers in both worlds.
He laments and sorrows,
Recollecting his own dark works.

[audio: English & Pali]

The good person rejoices
Here and hereafter
He rejoices in both worlds.
He exults and rejoices
Recollecting his own good works.

from ‘The Chapter on the Pairs’
Dhammapada
