     1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, 2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide. 4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

     5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, 6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. 7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? 8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.(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!
