All my life long I had panted
For a draught, from some clear spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.
Feeding on the husks around me,
Till 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.
I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longing -
Thru His blood I now am saved.
- Clara Tear Williams -
I have tasted heaven's manna,
And I want no other bread.
In green pastures I am dwelling,
And my hung'ring soul is fed.
At the living fount of waters,
I have quenched my thirst for aye.
I am living in God's glory,
And my sins are washed away.
- Avis B. Christiansen -
Have a beautiful and blessed Lord's Day!
Sweet hugs to you!
