Written by: Gordon McConnell

We have much to gain
to walk in contentment
and showing real godliness
bringing to God true commitment

We bring nothing into our world
and nothing when we go
with food and clothing as our lot
contentment we will know

Beware of loving money
many it’s led astray
to follow its way of folly
will bring regret on the final day

So keep the faith
looking to receive God’s well done
be contented with your lot
so Christ and you are one
