Lyrics

Verse 1
Soul of mine, in earthly temple,
Why not here content abide?
Why art thou forever pleading?
Why art thou not satisfied?

Chorus
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
When I awake in His likeness.

Verse 2
Soul of mine, my heart is clinging
To the earth’s fair pomp and pride;
Ah, why dost thou thus reprove me?
Why art thou not satisfied?

Verse 3
Soul of mine, must I surrender,
See myself as crucified;
Turn from all of earth’s ambition,
That thou may’st be satisfied?

Verse 4
Soul of mine, continue pleading;
Sin rebuke, and folly chide;
I accept the cross of Jesus,
That thou may’st be satisfied.
