I looked and searched and wandered, but yet I could not find
A love or satisfaction to fill this heart of mine.
I pined, I yearned, I begged for love from those who didn’t care.
I seeked comfort in the world, but I found no solace there.
You told me, “Child, no, that cistern has no hold
Of My fufilling water, the redeeming truth I’ve told.”
Oh, Father, I can’t believe it took me so long to listen,
To see it was Your love and acceptance I’d been missing.
