CONTENTED MIND, by            
First Line: Give me, o god! (for all things come from thee)
Last Line: "to look for't where it is, in a contented mind."
Subject(s): Contentment


"Give me, O God! (for all things come from thee)
Content, that richest cordial of the soul:
Possessing this, I happier shall be,
In my neglected, low degree,
Than he who does in heaps of riches roll.
Chymists, long in vain, have sought
The philosophic stone to find,
What labour had been spared! if they had thought
To look for't where it is, in a contented mind."
