To be happy
Regardless of circumstance
Not always a smile
But certainly at peace

To have joy
And still be warm
In the cold under
A starry sky
With no roof to get in the way

To pray
Without ceasing
To praise
Without murmur
To ask and be happy
With response
Form above
Yes or no
Knowing that the best He knows

To be content
With the content
Of the heart
And not the mansion
Fraction
You now occupy

Content
With content of life
And not the living
The beauty
Not the pretty
The rest
And not the slumber

Content
With the content
Of His hands
Nail scarred
Than the glowing hand
Of a devil saying worship me

Content
With the content
Of cup He drank at the cross
Content
With the content
Of heaven’s gates
When His blood bought
Saints (once wretches)
He welcomes home

Content with the calling
Content
With the contents
Of the starry crown
And content to lay it at His feet

Content
With the content
Though I am yet to see
