511. 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;
through 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)
