Satisfied

All my lifelong I had panted

For drink from some cool spring

That I hoped would quench the burning

Of the thirst I felt within.

Hallelujah! He has found me.

The One my soul so long has craved

Jesus satisfies my longings.

Thro’ His blood I now am saved.

Feeding on the filth around me

Till my strength was almost gone.

Longed my soul for something better

Only still to hunger on.

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.

Well of water ever springing

Bread of life so rich and free.

Untold wealth that never faileth

My Redeemer is to me.

Hallelujia! He has found me.

The One my soul so long has craved

Jesus satisfies my longings

Thro’ His blood I now am saved.
