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.
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.

Bread of life, so rich and free,

Untold wealth that never faileth,

My Redeemer is to me. ”

What a Christ He is to us!

When I awoke this morning this beautiful song was ringing in my soul. It’s a song you must sing or play all the way through as someone stated.

My reading today was John 9, especially vs. 30. Religious ppl didn’t know whom their souls longed for but a blind man told them.

Thru His life I now am saved.

This song is the testimony of my life; I was in church all my life but empty in my religion I never had any True joy and satisfaction within until Jesus found me. Hallelujah! Now every line of this song is alive with meaning.

This hymn "All my life long I had panted" has touched my heart. Every morning when I sing this song, I feel joy, comfort and very satisfied. May the Lord God remembers the author of the song Clara T. William who meant that Jesus is the living food and water.
