Just a cup of cooling water

Representative Text

1 Just a cup of cooling water given in the Master’s name,
Just a friendly word when all the way seems dim,
Just a little deed of kindness, Jesus tells us is the same
As if they were truly given unto him.

Refrain:
Just a cup of water in the Master’s name,
Just a loving word when all the way seems dim;
Just a little kindly deed to some life that stands in need,
‘Tis the same as tho’ you gave them unto him.

2 On thy pathway there are those whom gladness hath forsaken long,
And their cup of life is bitter to the brim;
You may turn their gloom to sunshine, and their sighing into song,
Jesus will account the service as for him. [Refrain]

3 Shed the light of hope and gladness, scatter blessings on your way,
Where Despair is standing pitiless and grim;
On the Master’s shining records you will see the joy some day,
‘Twas the same as tho’ you gave them unto him. [Refrain]
