Lyrics

Oh, Jesus gave me water
    Jesus gave me water, jesus gave me water
    I want to let his praises swell
    Jesus gave me water
    Jesus gave me water
    Jesus gave me water
    And it was not in the well

    Well, there was a woman from Samaria
    came to the well to get some water
    There she met a stranger who did a story tell
    That woman dropped her pitcher
    she drank and was made richer
    From the water he gave her and it was not in the well

    -part I-
    Yes she gave her
    Jesus gave her water
    Jesus gave her water
    I want to let his praises swell
     Jesus gave her water
    He gave that woman water
    He gave her living, loving, lasting water
    And he was not in the well

    Well on that woman he had pity
    she ran back to the city
    crying glory, hallelujah and did his wonders tell
    She left my savior singing
    She came back to him bringing
    The town to see that water Lord and it was not in the well

    repeat part I

    Well Lord that woman left for shoutin,
    there was no room for doubtin
    That she had met a savior who did her wonders tell
    Every time she doubt him, she start to think about him
    The man that gave her that water Lord, and he was not
    in the well
