Until Want Is Filled

 I know I've shared this song before but its worth a second listen:)
If you want to be filled with awe and admonition, page through the Psalms and count how many chapters begin with the reminder to us to sing and praise God!

When wish leaves love’s laughter spent
It is time to be content
Wishing drains the heart of hymn
Wastes the hour waned of vim

When we mistake want for need
And the voice of envy heed
We will miss Blessing’s buffet
Blinded by want’s wishing way

When the happiness we crave
Seems lacking in what we have
We should look with longer glance
Until want is stilled
And filled with humble thanks

Inspired, in part by this;
Contentment is Knowing the Difference...
