Lonely by day, empty and cold
Only to say lo and behold
Deep in the night, down in my dreams
Glorious sight this soul has seen

There's a well on the hill
You just can't kill for Jesus
There's a well on the hill, let it be
Don't build no heathen temples
Where the Lord has done laid his hand, now
There's a well on the hill, let it be

Everyone's talking 'bout the gospel story
Some shall sink and some shall rise
Everyone's talking 'bout the train to glory
Long, long time till it gets here to you, baby

There's a well on the hill
You just can't kill for Jesus
There's a well on the hill, let it be
Don't build no heathen temples
Where the Lord has done laid his hand
There's a well on the hill, let it be
