A Hymn Based on John 2:1-11

John 2:1-11:

1On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. 3When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." 4And Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

6Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8And he said to them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast." So they took it. 9When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom 10and said to him, "Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now." 11This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.

A New Creation Jesus Brought

To the tune: ST. MAGNUS (http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/UMH/326). Based on John 2:1-11. Words: Bill Weber, 2011.

v. 1
A new creation Jesus brought,
He worked ’til all was done.
Finished the work and rested not,
’til our salvation won.

v. 2
The seventh day the Lord was there
at Cana Galilee.
His mother said the wine is gone,
the wedding’s host in need.

v. 3
O what have I to do with you?
My time has not yet come.
Salvation’s work I came to do,
no rest ’til it is done.

v. 4
A miracle the Lord performed,
His glory did He show.
A sign of the creation new,
the wine did overflow.

v. 5
All praise to Jesus, God’s dear Son,
turned water into wine.
He came to us from heav’n above,
to give eternal life.
