1 There’s a question that I o’er and o’er have pondered
Since my blessed Lord and Master set me free;
While I’m satisfied with Jesus, I have wondered
Where He is fully satisfied with me.

Yes, I know that I am satisfied with Jesus
For I’m happy just as happy as can be
But I wonder while I’m satisfied with Jesus
Where He is fully satisfied with me.

2 Does my weary heart each day and hour possess Him?
Is He dearer than all else beside can be?
While I say I’m satisfied when I confess Him,
Yet is Jesus fully satisfied with me? [Refrain]

3 I am satisfied with Jesus as a Savior
And I’ve never found a better friend than He;
I am satisfied with tokens of His favor,
But is Jesus fully satisfied with me? [Refrain]

4 Take me Lord, O, take me now and consecrate me,
Thine alone for time and for eternity;
Then I know Thou wilt not leave me nor forsake me
For Thou wilt be fully satisfied with me. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
