                                 Text From:

                      THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        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!
