Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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