lyrics

-I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing it as loudly/
As I can, this man knew everything about me/
I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing it so loudly/
Come meet the man knew everything about me-

I'm a Samaritan woman, yawning/
Pardon my voice, it's a little early in the morning/
Now, before you denounce my announcement/
Please hear me out, now, while I recount the account of it/
I went to the well, sort of my routine order/
Then this Jew asked me for water/
Perhaps for refreshing/
Wait a second, did that Jewish man ask me a question/
I sit intrigued by this mystery/
Cause Jews and Samaritans didn't speak, due to our history/
No trepidation/
To engage in, conversation, with me of low reputation/
Said so matter of factly, but casually/
If you knew who asked for water, you would've asked of me/
He was using it in a broader/
Sense, what he meant was provision of living water/

-I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing as loudly/
As I can, the man knew everything about me/
I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing it so loudly/
Come meet the man knew everything about me-

What a way to spark debate up/
Are you saying you're greater than our patriarch Jacob/
Who gave what he drank from, as such as constructed/
And furthermore, you don't even have as much as a bucket/
Or something to immerse it in/
His reply, everyone who drinks from this well is gonna thirst again/
What I bring is springs of eternal life, given through mercy/
And once you drink it, you will never go thirsty/
I can't decrypt this encryption/
But by the description of it I want sips of it then/
Go and tell your husband, not to offend/
I'm not married, he said indeed I had five husbands/
And more details as I sit in amazement/
Let's just say he knew my living arrangements/
Now this picture I'm painting, see that I crop it/
But there's enough info to perceive he's a prophet/

-I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing as loudly/
As I can, the man knew everything about me/
I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing it so loudly/
Come meet the man knew everything about me-

Never bother thirsting with this fountain/
Jews say Jerusalem, our fathers worshipped in this mountain/
God's covenant with the Jews, he worked with them/
He said that we don't even know what we are worshipping/
It's not about the locale/
Sought by the father, but spirit and truth fitting the profile/
And here is the proof/
God is spirit, so those who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth/
My sigh of despair, disappeared/
When I shared, it'll be clear and declared, when the messiah gets here/
The next line, I'm all in shock, my jaw just dropped/
Sort of, like it was synchronized with my water pot/
What did I hear, are my ears defying me/
He looked me straight in the eye, and said I am he/

-I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing as loudly/
As I can, the man knew everything about me/
I have met the Messiah/
Everyone, come meet the Messiah/
That's why I'm sharing it so loudly/
Come meet the man knew everything about me-
