Broken Cisterns

O Christ, in You our soul has found,
And found in You alone,
The peace, the joy we sought so long,
The blessings until now unknown.

Now none but Christ can satisfy,
None other name for us;
There’s love & life & lasting joy,
Lord Jesus, found in You.

We sighed for rest & happiness,
We yearned for them, not You;
But, while we passed our Savior by,
His love laid hold on us.

We tried the broken cisterns, Lord,
But, oh, the waters failed!
And as we stooped to drink they fled,
And mocked us as we wailed.

The pleasures lost we sadly mourned,
But never wept for You,
Till grace the sightless eyes received,
You loveliness to see.

Now none but Christ can satisfy,
None other name for us;
There’s love & life & lasting joy,
Lord Jesus, found in You.
