518. Satisfied

1 All my life-long I had panted
For a drink from some cool spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.

Hallelujah! I have found Him -
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings;
Thro' His blood I now am saved.

2 Feeding on the husks around me,
Till my strength was almost gone,
Longed my soul for something better,
Only still to hunger on. [Refrain]

3 Poor I was, and sought for riches,
Something that would satisfy;
But the dust I gathered round me
Only mocked my soul’s sad cry. [Refrain]

4 Well of water, ever springing,
Bread of Life, so rich and free;
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me. [Refrain]
