Many Weary Years

Haldor Lillenas
(1885-1959)

13Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”

John 4:13-14 nasb

…and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:4 nasb

Many weary years I vainly sought a spring,
One that never would run dry;
Unavailing all that earth to me could bring —
Nothing seemed to satisfy.

Chorus:
Drinking at the Fountain that never runs dry,
Drinking at the Fountain of life am I;
Finding joy and pleasure
In abounding measure,
I am drinking at the Fountain of life!

Through the desert land of sin I roam no more,
For I find a living Spring,
And my cup of gladness now is running o’er,
Jesus is my Lord and King.

Here is sweet contentment as the days go by,
Here is holy peace and rest;
Here is consolation as the moments fly,
Here my heart is always blessed.

Here I find a never-ending, sure supply,
While the endless ages roll;
To this healing Fountain I would ever fly,
There to bathe my weary soul.
