All my lifelong I have panted
For a 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 all my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.
Feeding on the filth around me
Til 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.
