Satisfied

A Hymn.  Words by Clara T. Williams, music by Ralph E. Hudson, 1875.

All my life long I have panted
For a drink from some clear 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,
Through His blood I now am saved.

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

Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

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.

Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

Well of water, ever springing,
Bread of life so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me.

Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.

 

During one of our worship times this week, our group sang this song.  It’s one I haven’t heard or sung in awhile, but I love it.  It’s still in my head this morning.  Since today is Sunday, and I’m trying to focus and direct my thoughts towards worship (even though I’m home with green-nosed boys again), I thought I would post it.   I am praying that my heart would align with the lyrics as I sing them this morning…that my soul would crave Jesus, and that I would lean on HIM to satisfy my longings and desires.
