1 Worldly pleasures charm no more;
Jesus satisfies me;
Sinful days and nights are o’er;
Jesus satisfies me.

Jesus satisfies me,
Always His I’ll be;
Naught shall ever separate us
Thro’ eternity.

2 Day by day, He bends above;
Jesus satisfies me;
Whisp’ring courage, cheer and love;
Jesus satisfies me. [Chorus]

3 Overflowing with His praise,
Jesus satisfies me;
At His side I’ll spend my days;
Jesus satisfies me. [Chorus]
