I will behold Thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.@Psalm 17:15

If He, my Lord, is with me still
And I in Him abide,
If He but whisper to my heart,
Then I am satisfied.

Refrain

Satisfied in Jesus, my Lord,
He knows my sorrows and care;
I’ll praise His name wherever I go,
And seek His blessing in prayer.

Thro’ pastures green, or shadows deep,
With Him my constant guide,
If step by step He leads me on,
Then I am satisfied.

Refrain

And tho’ at times the things I ask,
In love are oft denied,
I know He gives me what is best,
And I am satisfied.

Refrain

From Him my soul, in life or death,
No power shall e’er divide;
I read the promise in His Word,
And I am satisfied.

Refrain
