Be Satisfied

Do not all things belong to him?

Does not creation bear his sign?

Does not the Lord of all deserve to do what is

Perfect in his sight?

 

Are not his purposes all good?

Are not his reasons pure and right?

Does not the Lord of all give everything we need

To make our way through life?

But I complain and grumble,

Wanting everything I see.

 

Teach me to be satisfied,

Be satisfied,

Be satisfied in you.

 

Are not my gifts from God enough?

Is not his kindness purely grace?

Does not he simply give me more than, by my work,

I can say I’ve claimed?

 

Do I not long to see my God

Pour out his blessings on all men?

Will I look out and see the last be first and say

“Hallelujah, Amen!”?

 

Will I complain when you show to others

Generosity?

 

Teach me to be satisfied,

Be satisfied,

Be satisfied in you.
