KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 16:

     1 Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. 5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

     8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.(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!
