The Lord has filled me up with peace,
And has made my anger to cease;
He has shown an interest in me,
Traits only He would ever see.
I do not even have to show,
Because He would already know;
What my capabilities are,
As well as patience just how far.
I am not saying having need,
Because I am content indeed;
Whatever the situation,
Or where might my habitation.
I know living in poverty,
As well as in prosperity;
Because I easily adapt,
So I am not easily trapped.
I have learned a little secret,
That I want to remain private;
Because I am not any fool,
I know when hungry or am full.
When having too few or too much,
God is giving His gentle touch;
His touch is giving me the strength,
To persevere at any length.
I do everything through Christ,
Ensuring not to get enticed;
So I can look the other way,
And not fear of going astray.
God will supply every need,
While ensuring enough seed;
The Gospel continue to spread,
And death no longer to be dread.
