Job struggles with his friends and with God, wondering why such trouble has come upon him. It’s a struggle we all face at times.

BibleGateway: Job 19:1-12

ESV Text: Job 19:1-12


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:0 and ends at about 1:14

     1 Then Job answered and said, 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words? 3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. 4 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself. 5 If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach: 6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net. 7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

     8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths. 9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head. 10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree. 11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies. 12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.(KJV)

1. I am content! My Jesus liveth still, 
In whom my heart is pleased. 
He hath fulfilled the Law of God for me, 
God’s wrath He hath appeased. 
Since He in death could perish never, 
I also shall not die forever. 
I am content! 

2. I am content! My Jesus is my Head; 
His member I will be. 
He bowed His head when on the cross He died 
With cries of agony. 
Now death is brought into subjection 
For me, too, by His resurrection. 
I am content! 

3. I am content! My Jesus is my Lord, 
My Prince of Life and Peace; 
His heart is yearning for my future bliss 
And for my soul’s release. 
The home where He, my Master, liveth 
He also to His servant giveth. 
I am content! 

4. I am content! My Jesus is my Light, 
My radiant Sun of Grace. 
His cheering rays beam blessings forth for all, 
Sweet comfort, hope, and peace. 
This Easter sun doth bring salvation 
And everlasting exultation. 
I am content! 

5. I am content! Lord, draw me unto Thee 
And wake me from the dead 
That I may rise forevermore to be 
With Thee, my living Head. 
The fetters of my body sever, 
Then shall my soul rejoice forever. 
I am content!
