Pleasures Forever

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Psalm 16:5-6, 11

Jesus Christ is my inheritance.
My cup runs over with His substance.

He maintains my position in life, well,
My stability is in Jesus, I will tell. 

It is a Godly heritage I’ve been given,
Showing me the abundant life as I’m driven.

I long to be in Thy presence,
Where is fullness of joy as a resident.

Thy right hand holds pleasures forevermore.
It is for this reason, He, I will never ignore.

Truly I have, by God’s generous grace, fallen into
Pleasant places through Jesus, my Lord, anew.

Contentment I have found all my days.
For being a follower of Jesus Christ always pays.
