1 I am satisfied with Jesus,
He has done so much for me:
He has suffered to redeem me,
He has died to set me free.

Refrain:
I am satisfied, I am satisfied,
I am satisfied with Jesus,
But the question comes to me,
As I think of Calvary,
Is my Savior satisfied with me?

2 He is with me in my trials,
Best of friends of all is He;
I can always count on Jesus,
Can He always count on me? [Refrain]

3 I can hear the voice of Jesus,
Calling out so pleadingly,
"Go and win the lost and straying";
Is He satisfied with me? [Refrain]

4 When my work on earth is ended,
And I cross the mystic sea,
Oh, that I could hear Him saying,
"I am satisfied with thee." [Refrain]
