JOY

Say not, If only things were different,I could rejoice: if only ICould evidence more confident supply,A happier home, or more established health,Better relationships—could I but see the wealthOf Love's provision manifest for me.And find fulfillment of deferred expectancy,Ah, then I could be joyful!

Say not, If only things were different!Think not improved occurrence would bring joy;But, rather, know it is our joy that bringsInto occurrence all the needful things.When gratitude and praise our thoughts employ,We reap unstintedly the fruits of joy!
