Duet
1. Beside the well at noontime,
I hear a sad one say:
I want that living water,
Give me to drink, I pray;
The well is deep, O pilgrim,
But deeper is my need,
I thirst for life eternal,
The Gift of God indeed.

Refrain
Ho, every one that thirsteth,
The living water buy!
Ye blessèd ones that hunger,
Take, eat and never die.

Duet
2. Beside the pool Bethesda,
I hear a mournful cry:
No help, no hope is offered
To one so weak as I;
Oh, cease thy sad complaining,
The Gospel gives thee cheer;
Come to the house of mercy,
For Christ the pool is here.

Refrain
’Tis He, the great Physician,
Can cure the sin-sick soul;
Rise up and walk, He bids thee,
Thy faith has made thee whole.

Duet
3. While seated on the hillside,
The hungry ones were fed
By Him who said most truly:
I am the living bread;
’Tis He, the heavenly manna,
Who doth our souls restore;
By faith of Him partaking,
We live forever more.

Refrain
Ho, every one that thirsteth,
The living water buy!
Ye blessèd ones that hunger,
Take, eat and never die.
