Contented?

What do I get ‘midst the groans of my pain?
I groan because the hurt is breaking me
Yet, in God’s eye, what should I attain?
Can I trust Him, my heart willing to be
Contented?

What do I get when my pain whines and cries?
When I’m in the middle of agony
And the only thing pulled from me are sighs?
Can I trust Him, my heart willing to be
Contented?

Is the Lord worthy of my highest praise?
When I’m doing right and undeservedly
I’m torn in two throughout the long days
Can I trust Him, my heart willing to be
Contented?

Where and on Who does my sight rest at night
When sleep eludes and pain overwhelms me?
When I wonder what might be my next plight
Can I trust Him, my heart willing to be
Contented?

Contented in Him and only Him
My soul, rest in Him and only Him!
For He alone is worthy, yes, Him!
For He alone is worthy of praise!
