soul food

The 19th century hymn Satisfied has been revisited as part of Fragments of Grace by cityhymns. These expectional musicians managed to breathe new life into a beautiful song:

“All my life long I had panted for a drink from some cool spring
That I hoped would quench the burning of the thirst I felt within…

…Feeding on the filth around me, ‘till my strength was almost gone
Longed my soul for something better, only still to hunger on…

…Poor I was and sought for riches, something that would satisfy
But the dust I gathered ‘round me only mocked my soul’s sad cry” – Clara T. Williams, 1875
