LOVE O LY SATISFIES. By J. M.
Psa. 15: 17. A secret longing in my breast Begets within my soul unrest; I traverse woodland, plain and street. With ear attent, with eager feet, In daylight fair, 'neath glittering star. And tho I wander near and far, Yet still my soul within me cries. There 's naught, there 's naught that satisfies, I read the lives of good and great; Their glorious deeds, their high estate; Their mighty thoughts uplift my soul, And bear me toward a richer goal; But soon the floodtide ebbs away. And leaves my feet in miry clay, And then again my spirit cries, There 's naught in man that satisfies. I breathe the springtime's balmy air; There 's beauty, beauty everywhere ; The fragrance of a thousand flowers My very senses overpowers; But soon the flowers fade and fall, And winter's clouds become their pall; Again my soul within me cries. There 's naught on earth that satisfies. I stand beneath the star-gemmed skies. Unseen except by heaven's eyes. And bathed in their resplendent rays, Am lost in wonder, awe, and praise; Yet, as these glories I survey, Adown the west they fade away, And as they fade my soul still cries, There 's naught above that satisfies. I take the wings of morning's light, And toward the mountains turn my flight; Each peak, crowned with eternal snows. In panoramic splendor glows;
The sun declines, the glories fade, And as the night's encircling shade Draws on, again my spirit cries, There 's naught in these that satisfies. With saddened heart one gloomy day, I wander thru the "dolorous way ;" It leads me out to Calvary's height; There I behold a marvelous sight; By faith I see the crimson tide That flows from Christ, the Crucified; Because He loves me, thus He dies ; 'T is love, Christ's love, that satisfies.
