1 In the love of Christ my Savior there is everything I need:
I have joy to overflowing, oh, my life is blest indeed!
Every prayer he doth answer, every call and whisper heed;
I am satisfied completely with his love.

Refrain:
I am satisfied, completely satisfied,
Getting every thing I need from him above,
I have no desire to stray, I am happy, day by day;
I am satisfied completely with his love.

2 When a tempest wildly rages, when to me a burden clings,
And the evil one assails me, even then my spirit sings,
For he shelters and relieves me, while I hide beneath his wings;
I am satisfied completely with his love. [Refrain]

3 I shall never, never doubt him, for a perfect friend is he,
Having shed his blood to save me, on the cross of Calvary;
Tho’ the world rejects and jeers him, he is good enough for me;
I am satisfied completely with his love. [Refrain]
