The Lord has filled me with joy,
He shows a concern in me;
Because of love I employ,
Displaying what others see.
Interested but with no chance,
You have not showed in return;
Relationships to advance,
Honor and trust for to earn.
I am not saying of need,
Since I learned to be content;
Whatever I can succeed,
No longer will I lament.
I have lived in poverty,
What it is like being broke;
As well as prosperity,
Having a wealth that awoke.
No matter the condition,
The situation we face;
God gives the recognition,
Giving His mercy and grace.
I learned about how to live,
If I am hungry or full;
Knowing that He will forgive,
Remembering God does rule.
When I have had way too much,
Or if not having enough;
God gives me a gentle touch,
During good times or when tough.
I can do everything,
Through Christ who will strengthen;
No matter what troubles bring,
My persistence will lengthen.
I look not for any gift,
For the opposite is true;
I am looking to uplift,
Inspire others like you.
God will richly fill your need,
Through Christ in a splendid way;
If you serve you will succeed,
If you will trust and obey.
