Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” -John 4 :10
What blessèd grace, to view the world anew!
This peace profound, how furtively it fell!
Though promised, unexpected: joy most true,
And never merited, I know that well.
A wretched soul, I only sought Thy care
Once I had tried all else, and ended torn:
I who had known Thee God, yet did not dare
To trust Thee with my life; I for Thee born!
At last I sought Thy peace; Thy call I’d heard.
So weak in faith, I never thought to find
A love so personal, a living Word
To strengthen me in falls and heal my mind.
How is it I, the frailest of weak things,
Could matter so to Thee, Great King of Kings?
