CONTENTMENT




Let the voluptuous proudly boast,
What dainties crown his board;
This is my meat, and this my drink,
To know and serve the Lord.


Let him his tens of thousands spend,
To satiate his taste;
To me a conscience void of guilt,
Becomes a nobler feast.


Let him his appetite indulge,
And still in pleasures roll;
In Jesusí love I seek and find,
A banquet for my soul.


The poorest fare shall give content,
If Jesus be but mine;
Nor will I envy all the world,
Their corn and oil and wine.
