All my life long I had panted
- All my life long I had panted
For a draught from some cool spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.
- Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings;
Through His life I now am saved.
Till my strength was almost gone,
Longed my soul for something better,
Only still to hunger on.
Something that would satisfy,
But the dust I gathered round me
Only mocked my soul’s sad cry.
Bread of life, so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me.
