All my life long I had panted

1
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.
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 soul’s 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.

John 10:10 tells us that the Lord comes for us to have Him as life and have it abundantly. In John 6 the Lord fed the 5000 people showing that Jesus knows that we are longing for something that can satisfy us yet we do not know that only the Lord can satisfy us. Maybe we seek education, pleasure, money, success but still we are so dry. All of these cannot fill us; we are still unsatisfied. We don't have tomorrow we only have today. We need JESUS!!!!!
