Jacob’s Well


his past Sunday Mike Koop arrived with a new song, written in response to the gospel reading for the week. Called “Jacob’s Well,” the song is a poetic imagining of the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman recounted in John 4:1-42. A live-off-the-floor recording was made, and though it lacks the polish and balance of a studio recording we did think it well worth sharing. Mike is accompanied on this one by Charles Garinger (bass and vocals), Jodi McLaren (vocals), Larry  Campbell (percussion and vocals), and Bob Hobson (percussion).

He sat down at Jacob’s Well
and asked her for some water
she said sir I’m Samaritan
your request I can not honor
Please give me water
pure clear water
my thirst has brought me low
please give me water
pure clear water
my thirst is all I know
He said woman if you only knew
about the cup I offer
just drink of my dram so sure & sweet
and you will live forever

I thought you were a prophet
when you told me who I am
But then you offered to set me free
Now I see and I believe in my soul
that your cup is all I need
