41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus’ feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: 42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. 49 While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master. 50 But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. 51 And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise. 55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat. 56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.(KJV)

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! 

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! 

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! 

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! 

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!
