“Our Lord labored and He went like a farmer
to water the seed that Moses sowed.
Directly to the well He went to give
hidden and living water for the sake of the revelation.
Blessed is Moses, who, with the book he wrote, sowed
the symbols of the Messiah, still young;
by [Christ’s] watering were the seeds of the house of Moses perfected,
and they were reaped by His disciples.
Refrain: Praises to your humility!
Blessed are you, drawer of ordinary water,
who turned out to be a drawer of living water.
You found a treasure, another Source,
from Whom a flood of mercies flows.
The spring had dried up, but it broke through to you and gave you to drink.
He was poor, but He asked in order to enrich you.
You left behind your pitcher, but you filled understanding and gave your people to drink.
Blessed are you to whom He gave living water to drink,
and you did not thirst again, as you said.
For he called the truth “living water,”
since all who hear it will not thirst again.
Blessed are you who learned the truth and did not thirst;
for one is the Messiah and there are no more.”
(HYMNS, p 355)
