Jacob's Well

Composer: Gail Poulsen
Lyricist: Gail Poulsen, Linda Lensink

1.My child here at the Well,
I ask you, "Fill my cup."
You say no because you don't know who I am.
I am weary and I'm tired and my journey's been so long,
and I know you've been on quite a journey too."

Chorus
and I say "come, child to the living water,
for all who drink from it will never thirst again.
If you are weary, come lay your burdens at my feet
and I will wipe your tears a way.

2. I can see it in your eyes,
pain you carry ev'ry day,
for when I look at you, you turn your face a way.
You have tried to find some comfort,
in the pleasure of this earth,
but it ends right here, for this water gives new birth. Chorus

3. You came to quench your thirst
with the water from this well,
but instead you have the greatest news to tell.

Chorus
For I say come, all to the living water
for all who drink from it will never thirst again.
If you are weary, come lay your burdens at my feet,
and I will wipe your tears a way;
it was no accident that you came here today.
Your cup is empty but your soul can be full,
for I say come all to the living water
for all who drink from it will never thirst again.
