GUEST,Tim Origins: At Jacob's Well (a Stranger Sought) (24) RE: Origins: At Jacob's Well (a Stranger Sought) 21 Nov 10

Thanks for the Village Hymns info.

HYMN 80. C. M.

Newmark. Barby.

1 At Jacob's well a stranger sought
His drooping frame to cheer :
Samaria's daughter little thought
That Jacob's God was near.

2 This had she known, her fainting mind
For richer draughts had sigh'd ;
Nor had Messiah, ever kind.
Those richer draughts deny'd.

3 The man, who came on earth to die,
How few appear to know !
The friend of sinners, passing by,
Is still esteem'd a foe.

4 The sinner must the stranger know,
Or soon his loss deplore ;
Behold ! the living waters flow ;
Comeó drink, and thirst no more.

Knaresborough (? in a more original, less fuguing form than the Union Tune Book version) is number 45 in the 1823 Bridgewater Collection of Sacred Music at
