Psalm 107:9
"For he satisfieth the longing soul,
and filleth the hungry soul with goodness."

          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.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah!  I have found Him,
            Whom my soul so long has craved!
            Jesus satisfies my longings,
            Through His blood I now am saved.

          Feeding on the husks around me,
          Till my strength was almost gone,
          Longed my soul for something better,
          Only still to hunger on.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah!  I have found Him,
            Whom my soul so long has craved!
            Jesus satisfies my longings,
            Through His blood I now am saved.

          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.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah!  I have found Him,
            Whom my soul so long has craved!
            Jesus satisfies my longings,
            Through His blood I now am saved.

          Well of water, ever springing,
          Bread of life so rich and free,
          Untold wealth that never faileth,
          My Redeemer is to me.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah!  I have found Him,
            Whom my soul so long has craved!
            Jesus satisfies my longings,
            Through His blood I now am saved.
