Third Sunday in Lent

Kneeler 75

John 4: 7-10

A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."

8 (His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.)

9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?" (Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.)

10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, 'give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water."

Like the woman at the well I was seeking,
For things that could not satisfy.
And then I heard my saviour speaking,
'draw from my well, that never shall run dry'

Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up, Lord,
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more,
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.

2 There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasure earthly things afford.
But none can match the wondrous treasure
that I find in Jesus Christ, my Lord.

3 So my sister(brother) if the things this world gave you,
leave hungers that won't pass away,
My blessed Lord will come and save you,
If you kneel to him and humbly pray.
