Hymn #196: When, like the Woman at the Well
Exodus The Israelites quarrelled and tested the Lord Psalm 95 O come, let us sing to the Lord Romans We are justified by faith John Jesus and the woman at the well. Suggested Hymns From Denis Towner. In his meeting with the woman at the well in Samaria [John chapter 4] Jesus crossed boundaries and put away many taboos.
It tells us something about the status of women, how to relate to foreigners, and how to deal with different religions. Yet there is more to the story. It lifts us beyond even those important concerns, to worship "in spirit and in truth", and it provides an early example of evangelism by women.
The Samaritan woman became one of the earliest missionaries and her response has encouraged women who have been called into ministry, even to our own day. The revelation of Jesus as more than an ordinary man Rather than being focussed on "the woman at the well" John directs attention to "the man at the well", posing questions about who he is.
The woman represents the Samaritan people and a widening of concern with the whole of humanity. The common origin of Jews and Samaritans and a new source of truth Jesus met the woman at Jacob's well. Jacob called Israel , was the common ancestor of both the Jews and the Samaritans [John ,12] but they would not accept each other [John ].
The teaching of Moses was recognized by them both as "the gift of God" and was symbolized by a spring of water welling up. The woman knowing about the Messiah should have been able to receive a more valuable gift of "living water" from him [John ].
A question of allegiance and true worship She sees him as a prophet [John ,29 and see Deuteronomy and 2 Samuel 11 and 12] because of what he knew about her, but his insight went further to understanding her people. Her five husbands correspond to five false gods to which her nation had given allegiance [2 Kings 17], leading to their present unfaithfulness. The Samaritans continued to worship God on a mountain rather than at the temple [John ]; but Jesus pointed beyond that old controversy to worship in "in spirit and in truth" which the Messiah would bring [John ] in a universal fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! In your mercy, Lord, pardon and restore us, that together in the ministry of Christ we may serve you with joy all the days of our life. Thanks be to God. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. O that today you would listen to his voice! O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. A 19th century prayer in the spirit of St Francis of Assisi. Grant your people the gift of the Spirit, that we may profess our faith with courage and announce with joy the wonders of your love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Hymns for Lent 3, Yr.

That's a good hymn. I haven't seen Denny's original, to judge the details of the adaptation, but the language seems appropriate, and the additions pretty much seamless. I completely agree on the desirability of Bible-story hymns, and this is a good addition to the corpus.
