CHRIST AT JACOB'S WELL




The Lord must through Samaria go,
To execute his Fatherís will;
There he had mighty works to do,
And his engagements must fulfil.


Wearied, he rests at Jocobís well,
And asks to taste its cooling stream;
But she who could her story tell,
Had no compassions left for him.


His lips with wisdom ever fraught,
His heart with love still overflowed,
The sinful stranger now he taught,
And soon her heart with wonder glowed.


Continuing his benign discourse,
He from the well a picture drew,
Of waters of diviner source,
For ever springing, ever new.


The woman on Messias gazed,
Enquiring whence these springs could rise;
At length her suppliant voice she raised,
And craved of him those rich supplies.


Jesus is still he living spring,
Eternal life is his to give;
Creatures to him your offerings being,
Drink at the fount and ever live.
