All My Life I Had a Longing
1 All my life I had a longing, For a drink from some clear spring, That I hoped would quench the burning, Of the thirst I felt within.
2 Feeding on the husks around me, Till my strength was almost gone, Longed my soul for something better, Only still to hunger on.
3 Poor I was, and sought for riches, Something that would satisfy, But the dust I gathered round me, Only mocked my souls sad cry.
4 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 my soul so long has craved! Jesus satisfies my longings, Thro His blood I now am saved.
