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

Yes, He gave her water
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 it 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

Yes, He gave her water
Jesus gave her water, Jesus gave her water
I want to let His praises swell
Jesus gave that woman water
Gave her living, loving, lasting water and it was not in the well

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

Yes, He gave her water
Jesus gave her water, Jesus gave her water
I want to let His praises swell
Tell you He gave that woman water
Gave her that living, lasting water
Water, water, water, water loving water and it was not in the well
