1 Our God is a spirit, and they who aright
Would offer the worship He loveth,
In the heart's holy temple will seek with delight
The spirit the Father approveth.
2 This, this is the worship the Saviour made known
When she of Samaria found him
By the Patriarch's well, sitting weary, alone,
With the stillness of noontide around him.
3 He having once entered hath shown us the way,
O God! how to worship before Thee,
Not with the vain forms of that earlier day,
But in spirit and truth to adore Thee.
