Hymn/Song Information

CONTENTMENT




Whatever state I’m in,
Contented would I be;
If wealthy, save me Lord from pride,
If poor from envy free.


The frowns of providence
I would submissive bear;
And when my purposes are crossed,
No gloomy aspect wear.


But if the scene should change,
And light my steps surround,
My heart shall be with love inflamed,
My lips with praise resound.


Whate’er my lot may be,
‘Tis fixed by thee my God;
Cheerful I’ll bless the giving hand,
And kiss the scourging rod.
