Yesterday, an old old song came to my mind. What are all the words, I am asking myself. Yes, it might be on the internet. That's when I found someone else who had remembered the song, Christ is Not a Disappointment. Thanks to you and a few others. Good words for the day!

Here are the lyrics, in case anyone is looking for them

1.
I have found no satisfaction in the fleeting joys of earth
I had hewn me broken cisterns that had mocked me by their dearth
All the springs my soul had tested failed to meet my deepest need
Christ, alone, has met my longing, He has satisfied indeed!

Chorus
Christ is not a disappointment! Every longing in my breast
Finds, in Him, complete fulfillment, He has brought me into rest
I have tested Him, and proved Him more than all I dreamed He'd be
Christ is not a disappointment, He is all in all to me!

2:
I was tempted not to trust Him for so many things had failed
But so patiently He waited and His tenderness prevailed
So, I swung my heart's door open, and His promises I tried
Christ is not a disappointment, He has fully satisfied!

3:
I had tried the world for pleasure, but it could not satisfy.
Though it promised much, it failed me. All its wells and springs were dry...
Everything I tried was empty, and I thought my life was vain,
Then, He came and tuned my heartstrings,
And I learned to sing again.

Here's a link on Amazon to the book that Guest referred to above:

Songs Everybody Loves (Volume 2)

Thanks!

It is such a blessing to get the lyrics for this old song. I sang it years ago and have been thinking about it recently but couldn't find my words. God bless.

Thanks, I just ordered a copy of the book mentioned back in 2013. Anybody know who wrote the words, and whether they were written to be sung to ERIE (CONVERSE), i.e. "What a friend we have in Jesus", or to some other tune?
