Jacob's WellHe was on his way back to the land of Galilee, just a stranger passing by
It was the noon time hour, it was hot and it was dry
With the sun high in the sky;
He was weary from His walk, and he knew he had to stop and rest for just a spell
It was a day I won’t forget, it was Jesus that I met
At the edge of Jacob’s Well.
Imagine my surprise at the time that I arrived, when He asked me for a drink
A Samaritan woman and a trail weary Jew, what was I supposed to think?
He said, “If you only knew God’s gift for you, then you would ask of me,”
Living Water….Living Water….
Was the message he did tell at the place of Jacob’s Well.
Chorus:He said, “Living water, I will give to you
Springs of Life Eternal, is my gift in truth;
Living water, and you will thirst no more;
For hope and peace in life, that you’ve been yearning for…”
Oh, Living water.
I couldn’t wait to share all the things he had to say as I hurried back to town;
He told me everything that I ever did and people came from miles around;
Well, they heard and they believed, He is the Saviour of the World
And the story I still tell…
How it all began that day at Jacob’s Well.
I give you springs of living water flowing from within
Come take this gift I offer,
Be cleansed from all you sin.
Chorus:Living water, I will give to you
Springs of Life Eternal, is My gift in truth;
Oh, Living water, and you will thirst no more;
For hope and peace in life, that you’ve been yearning for.
Living water, flowing from within
Come take this gift I offer, be cleansed from all your sin.
Oh, Living water and you will thirst no more
For hope and peace in life, that you’ve been yearning for
Oh, Living water…Living water…
I will give to you….I will give to you…Living water.
