Jacob's Well

Written By: Rick Nemi

Jacob’s Well
© rickniemi2010

It’s quiet now ‘round Jacob’s well
But a tale it could tell
Of images and voices, a conversation overheard
How a simple drink of water
Could save the world
Save the world

The air is still about the well
As if someone just left
Hurry, tell your people
I have seen His face
Weary of the world, He’s come
Thirsting for faith
For our faith

(refrain)
Five husbands on the bed
To other gods you’ve been wed
Now a mistress, not a wife
You will be the bride of Christ

The well is deep and old
It holds the law and prophecies
From the time of Jacob to this modern day
Generations have drunk their fill
Only to thirst again
And I thirst again

(refrain)
Five husbands on the bed
To your senses you’ve been wed
Now a mistress, not a wife
You will be the bride of Christ

It’s quiet now ‘round Jacob’s well
But a tale it could tell
A simple drink of water
The making of a church
Salvation come from the Jews
A conversation, overheard
