His desire was to go through Samaria first,
To arrive at a well at the Height of his thirst
A woman came down to draw water each day
And met this man Jesus who’d steered from his way
He recalled her life and he spoke of her sin
The husbands she’d had and the places she’d been
He spoke in a way that she understood
He said “Drink of my well it will quench you for good”.
It didn’t take long for the twelve to arrive
Surprised to find Jesus with the Samaritan wife
They looked at each other but no-one asked why
And breaking the silence she said her goodbyes
It played on her mind going home in remorse
She told all her friends and her husbands of course
I’ve met the main man, the messiah, the one
He knew all about me, the things that I’ve done
You need to come with me to listen , to see
Experience the power his words had on me.
I just want to see the look on your faces
To believe he was here at the well of all places.
“Is this the Messiah”? “is he really the one”?
He spoke strange things like “The time had now come”,
And “God would be worshipped in spirit and truth”
So off they all went to see living proof.
Wherever they went they heard of his fame
The things he had spoken were true as she claimed
The converts were many in Samaria that day
And all because Jesus had journeyed that way
