1 Fill My Cup, Lord Richard Blanchard Like the woman at the well, I was seeking For things that could not satisfy. And then I heard my Savior speaking Draw from My well that never shall run dry. Chorus: Fill my cup, Lord; I lift it up Lord; Come and quench this thirsting of my soul. Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more. Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. There are millions in this world who are seeking For pleasures earthly goods afford. But none can match the wondrous treasure That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord. (Chorus) So my brother if the things that this world gives you Leave hungers that won t pass away, My blessed Lord will come and save you If you kneel to Him and humbly pray: (Chorus)

2 [It Knocks at a Door of Stone] by Pablo Neruda It knocks at a door of stone on the coast, on the sand, with many hands of water. The rock doesn t respond. Nobody will open it. To knock is a waste of water, a waste of time. Still, it knocks, it beats, every day and every year, every century of the centuries. Finally something happened. The stone is different. Now it has a smooth curve like a breast, it has a channel through which water flows, the rock is not the same and is the same. There, where the reef was most rugged, the wave climbs smoothly over the door of earth. (from El Mar y las Campanas/the Sea and the Bells (Translation by William O Daly 1973)

3 Lenten Litany Week Six All: Like the woman at the well, I was seeking One: For things that could not satisfy. Others: And then I heard my Savior speaking One: Draw from My well that never shall run dry. Others: So my neighbor {brother} if the things that this world gives you One: Leave hungers that won t pass away, Others: My blessed Lord will come and save you One: If you kneel to Him and humbly pray: Others: Fill my cup, Lord; One: I lift it up Lord; Others: Come and quench this thirsting of my soul. One: Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more. Others: Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. All: Here am I, Lord; take me, I m yours! I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD Psalm 116: 13 he took the cup also, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. 1 Corinthians 11: 25

4 LENTEN BIBLE STUDY 6 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, got up from the table, took off his outer robe, and tied a towel around himself. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples feet and to wipe them with the towel that was tied around him. John 13: 3-5 Let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper. Psalm 1:3 O children of Zion, be glad and rejoice in the LORD your God; for he has given the early rain for your vindication, he has poured down for you abundant rain Joel 2: 23 Then the remnant of Jacob, surrounded by many peoples, shall be like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass Micah 5: 7 I will make streams flow down the slopes and produce springs in the middle of the valleys. I will turn the desert into a pool of water and the arid land into springs. Isaiah 41:18 (NET)

5 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? And I said, Here am I; send me! Isaiah 6:8 STUDY QUESTIONS Week Six 1. What do you think is the most important scripture in the Bible? Many folks think it s John 3:16. Why do you choose your verse? 2. The hymn, Fill My Cup, Lord, can be taken as a reference to communion, where we not only remember the sacrifice of Christ, but re-member his body. Should we focus more on his sacrifice, or the greatest commandment? { Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12: 29-31} 3. What do you think happens spiritually when we take communion? When we are baptized? Do you believe in the communion of the saints? That we are born sinners or pure creations of God? 4. When God gave the Hebrews water from the rock he was providing for their physical needs; when Jesus promised living water he was referring to our spiritual needs. Do you have enough spiritual water in your life? How can you get more? 5. When you read these verses about early rain, dew from the Lord, streams turning arid land into springs, what does it make you feel? What is the purpose of these images in God s word? He knows we have short attention spans, that our focus is temporal, egocentric. Why not be straight? 6. What was Jesus most important message to us? What does he want us to learn from his life, ministry and death?

6 7. Share your water impressions and discuss what they mean to you. The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? 1 Cor. 10: 16a Lord, not only in the roar of a hard rain, but in the dousing, dipping, drenching of our baptism, call us to live into that new life that is your resurrection. Amen. From Common Prayer
