The Lord is at hand, we must be careful,
Give thanks, rejoice and pray.
For His presence requires our steadfastness,
His Word we must always obey.
In everything by prayer and supplication
Our requests are to be known to God,
His peace which passes all understanding
Will be ours on the path we trod.
We are to think on things true and honest,
Those things which are lovely, just and pure.
Things of good report and virtuous
This is what makes us mature.
Contentedness is learning to live
In whatsoever state we are in.
Accepting God’s will with rejoicing
Recognizing it is Christ who strengthens.
God has promised to supply our needs
According to His riches in Christ.
There is never a need to worry
He will provide until we reach paradise.
