A Hymn Inspired by John 4:5-42

To the tune of EBENEZER[1]




   Jesus speaks of living water

   What’s the meaning and who knows?

   Nicodemus, in the darkness,

   Came seeking answers and new birth.

   He left wondering, not understanding

   Jesus’ wisdom, spirit, and life—

   Came in darkness, left in darkness,

   Bound by doubt and unbelief.




   Jesus speaks of living water

   What’s the meaning and who knows?

   Could it be an unnamed woman

   Understood, and in full light?

   “Give me this the living water,”

   She responded, longing for life.

   And she found in Jesus the prophet

   Wisdom she could not contain.




   Jesus speaks of living water

   What’s the meaning and who knows?

   Jesus, by the well of Jacob,

   Met a woman, whose knowledge showed.

   “Come and see,” she told the people,

   “He has told me what I've done.”

   In the daylight, with her insight,

   She believes and longs to tell.



   [1] The tune to which O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus is commonly sung.
