196. I Am content! My Jesus Liveth Still

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 Price 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 being 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!

Amen.
