"Contentment comes not from abundance of things,
Of earthly possessions and gain;
Not by laying up silver and gold for this life,
Can you any contentment obtain.
"To strive for abundance in temporal things,
Contentment this way, you'll not find;
But to walk in communion and nearness to God,
Gives peace and contentment of mind.
"The Savior of men with His marvelous love,
Will then be our object of joy:
He'll lead our affections to things up above,
Which moth and rust can't destroy.
"So just what His wisdom sees best to bestow,
Whether small or in larger extent,
Let us trust Him completely, whatever our lot;
With our measure of means be content."
