Very Contented

My God is a consuming fire
Who does meet my every need
He bounds my spirit in his pocket
As he quietly watches over me

Never will I ever be all alone
Or far from his eyes that see
For wherever it is I am in life
He is always so close to me

He never forsakes me a moment
Or His blessed daily bread to eat
For my Lord provides my needed supper
And all the spiritual drink I need

Even though around me sin does abound
And each day pulls at my senses
His spirit allows my heart to see
Through all of sin’s evil pretenses

For my God, my God is pure life to me
Surrounding me with angelic fences
Holding me closely to Him everyday
Keeping my heart so very contented.
