Representative Text

1. Satisfied with Thee, Lord Jesus,
I am blest;
Peace which passeth understanding,
On Thy breast;
No more doubting, no more trembling,
Oh, what rest! Oh, what rest!

2. Occupied with Thee, Lord Jesus,
In Thy grace;
All Thy ways and tho’ts about me
Only trace
Deeper stories of the glories
Of Thy grace, of Thy grace.

3. Taken up with Thee, Lord Jesus,
I would be;
Finding joy and satisfaction
All in Thee;
Thou the nearest and the dearest
Unto me, unto me.

4. List’ning for Thy shout, Lord Jesus,
In the air!
When Thy saints shall rise with joy to
Meet Thee there;
O what gladness! no more sadness,
Sin nor care, sin nor care.
