Happy Is


Proverbs 22:7
New Living Translation (NLT)

7 Just as the rich rule the poor,
so the borrower is servant to the lender.

Happy Is

Happy is the one who lives
Within their own means,
Who does not spend next week’s pay
On all their future dreams,

Who enjoys life’s simple pleasures
That will not break the bank,
And who lives an honest, frugal life
And always gives a prayer of thanks,

Who does not need a limousine,
Just a car to get around,
And has no use for mansions,
Just a small home near to town,

Who passes up on diamond rings,
Choosing just a simple band,
But speaks an everlasting vow
While holding to that special hand,

Yes, few would choose to live like this,
It’s not the popular way,
Most would rather spend all they have
On the pleasures of today.

You bless us with wisdom that will keep us from peril. Please help us all to see the value of not spending more than we make. Debt is a hard taskmaster who whips us for overspending, then loans us more money. We thank You for caring for each and every one of us.
