Like the woman at the well I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy
And then I heard my saviour speaking,
“Draw from my well that never shall run dry”
Fill my cup, Lord;
I lift it up, Lord;
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.
There are millions in this world who are seeking
For pleasures earthly goods afford
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.
So my brother if the things that this world gives you
Leave hungers that wont pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you
If you kneel to him and humbly pray.
