Subject(s): Contentment

Lovely, lasting Peace of Mind
Gently soothe my soul to rest;
In thy soft balm relief we find
To heal the sorrow-wounded breast;
'Tis thou canst tune my soul to peace,
And make each jarring passion cease.

Sweet Content! thou dear delight,
Thou sovereign cordial for our woes;
Thou mak'st our cares and burdens light,
From thee incessant sweetness flows.
From envy, pride, and discord free,
We here enjoy a heaven in thee.
