“Satisfied” Clara Williams (Hymns of the Christian Life, 495)

“All my life long I had panted for a drink from some cool spring That I hoped would quench the burning of the thirst I felt within. 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.

Refrain: Hallelujah! I have found Him Whom my soul so long has craved! Jesus satisfies my longings; Through His blood I now am saved.”

1 Timothy 6:6-7

C. Promise of Presence (v. 27)

Revelation 21:6


1. As you think about the “years that the locusts have eaten”, what are some of the things that you feel you have lost to those years? Have you even thought the Lord can restore you?

2. Are you willing to return to the Lord as He invites you?

Read: Hebrews 12:15

What do we risk if we embrace bitterness according to this verse? What image of bitterness is given in this verse?
