All by myself, here at the well again
Drawing water during the afternoon
All the others get their fill in the cool of the day
But as for me, I’m too ashamed.
They know me, all those in the village
As the one who seeks someone to love
I can not hide it anymore, everyone knows
But they do not know, my heart is broken.
Though many pass by, I feel all alone
They laugh, spit, and curse at me
I have nowhere to go away from them
Inside I feel like I should die.
Who is this who sits close by me
If only He knew, this would not be so
He speaks with words softly spoken
But I simply do not understand.
“Will you give me a drink?” He asked,
Who am I that I should give
Then He offers me the living water
I am now satisfied, my soul is at rest, I have seen Christ.
