  • Woah, Jesus gave me water, Jesus gave me water
    Jesus gave me water, I wanna 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
    Then the woman dropped her pitcher
    She's drinking 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 wanna let His praises swell
    Jesus gave her water, He gave that woman water
    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 times she'd had water Lord, and it was not in the well

    Yes, He gave her water, Jesus gave her water
    Jesus gave her water, I wanna let His praises swell
    Jesus gave that woman water, gave her that love and lasting water
    Water and it was not in the well

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

    Yes, He gave her water, Jesus gave her water
    Jesus gave her water, I wanna let His praises swell
    Tell you He gave that woman water, gave her that love and lasting water
    Water, water, water, water loving water and it was not in the well Writer/s: Lucie E Campbell
