Joy in God

Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. Psalm 5:11

When with his smiles my soul he deigns to bless,
Nor cares nor crosses can my peace destroy,
Possessing all things if I him possess,
Enjoying all things if I him enjoy.
