Woman at the Well
Carl H. Bloch


Our Savior once wandered on earth as a man,
Both footsore and weary to Samaria’s land;
A story He told, most wondrously grand:
Salvation thro’ Jesus for poor sinful man!


We’ll sing this sweet song, this glorious song,
Of Jesus who died on the tree!
He died on the tree for you and for me!
O, sing the sweet story: Sal­va­tion is free!

Sore, weary, and thirsty, He came to a well,
And there, to a woman, this story did tell;
She heard it with joy, for her soul could be free,
And she this salvation thro’ Jesus did see!


Then brother, let’s sing this sweet story, so true,
Salvation thro’ Jesus, for me and for you!
Let every glad heart this great message now tell,
The same old sweet story, told there at the well!
