1 All my life long I have panted
For a draught from some cool spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.
Refrain: Hallelujah! I have found Him— Whom my soul so long has craved! Jesus satisfies my longings; Thro’ 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]
