13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. 19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.(KJV)

1. Arise and shine in splendor, 
Let night to day surrender; 
They light is drawing near, 
Above thee day is beaming 
In matchless beauty gleaming; 
The glory of the Lord is here. 

2. See earth in darkness lying, 
The heathen nations dying 
In hopeless gloom and night. 
To thee the lord of heaven - 
Thy life, they hope hath given 
Great glory, honor and delight. 

3. The World’s remotest races, 
Upon whose weary faces 
The sun looks from the sky, 
Shall run with zeal untiring, 
With joy thy light desiring 
That breaks upon them from on high. 

4. Lift up thy eyes in wonder; 
See nations gather yonder, 
They all come unto thee 
The world has heard thy story 
Thy sons come to thy glory, 
And daughters haste thy Light to see. 

5. Thy heart will leap for gladness 
When from the realms of sadness 
They come o’er land and sea. 
Thine eyes will wake from slumber 
When people without number 
Come thronging from afar to thee.
