Divine Acceptance a Source of Joy

Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy work. Eccles. 9:7

Whilst I see thy love to me,
Every object teems with joy;
Here, oh may I walk with thee,
Then into thy presence die!

Let me but thyself possess,
Total sum, of happiness;
Real bliss I then shall prove--
Heaven below, and heaven above.
