I Am Content! My Jesus Liveth Still

Tune: Est ist genug

  1. I am content! My Jesus liveth still,
    In whom my heart is pleased.
    He hath fulfilled the Law of God for me,
    God’s wrath He hath appeased.
    Since He in death could perish never,
    I also shall not die forever.
    I am content!
    I am content!

  2. I am content! My Jesus is my Head;
    His member I will be.
    He bowed His head when on the cross He died
    With cries of agony.
    Now death is brought into subjection
    For me, too, by His resurrection.
    I am content!
    I am content!

  3. I am content! My Jesus is my Lord,
    My Prince of Life and Peace;
    His heart is yearning for my future bliss
    And for my soul’s release.
    The home where He, my Master, liveth
    He also to His servant giveth.
    I am content!
    I am content!

  4. I am content! My Jesus is my Light,
    My radiant Sun of Grace.
    His cheering rays beam blessings forth for all,
    Sweet comfort, hope, and peace.
    This Easter Sun doth bring salvation
    And everlasting exultation.
    I am content!
    I am content!

  5. I am content! Lord, draw me unto Thee
    And wake me from the dead
    That I may rise forevermore to be
    With Thee, my living Head.
    The fetters of my body sever,
    Then shall my soul rejoice forever.
    I am content!
    I am content!
