COMPOSER : John van Gulik

This arrangement is a blend of the traditional tunes used for "The Well is Deep" ("The voice in the old village choir" - Harry Woods, 1932) and "Jesus Keep me Near the Cross" (author unknown). Both songs refer to the well known passage in the Bible where Jesus refers to Himself as the Living Water by which any who ask and accept Him are saved to Eternal Life.

“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?” (John 4:11)

The well is deep and I require

A draught of the water of life,

But none can quench my soul's desire

For a draught Or the water of life;

Till one draws near who the cry will heed,

Helper of men in their time of need,

And I, believing, find indeed

That Christ is the water of life.


Jesus, keep me near the cross

There a precious fountain,

Free to all, a healing stream,

Flows from Calvary's mountain.

Flows from Calvary's mountain.

In the cross, in the cross

Be my glory ever
