A Cup of Cold Water.

1. Only a cup of water,
But it was cool and clear,
And given with a pleasant smile,
And kindly word of cheer.

2. Only a cup of water,
But as the pilgrim quaffed,
He felt refreshment in the cup,
And healing in the draught.

3. Only a cup of water,
But with it words she gave,
Of One who lived a pilgrim here,
And died the world to save.

4. Only a cup of water,
'Twas all she had to give,
But wile his life and sense remain,
The memory will live.

5. Then wait not for abundance,
Give of your little store;
With gentle word and willing hand,
He asketh nothing more.
