Along the pathway of dark despair,
All brokenhearted, bowed down with care;
I met The Master and I knew Him there,
And He filled that longing down in my soul.

Chorus:
I searched for Him,
And I knew not what I searched for.
I longed for Him,
And I knew not what I longed for.
Then, I found Jesus,
And I knew that I would search no more.
He filled that longing down in my soul.

If you've been bruised by the chains of sin,
And you are searching for peace within;
I know a Savior who'll make you whole,
And fill that longing down in your soul.

Chorus:
I searched for Him,
And I knew not what I searched for.
I longed for Him,
And I knew not what I longed for.
Then, I found Jesus,
And I knew that I would search no more;
He filled that longing down in my soul.
He filled that longing down in my soul.
