Lord I lift my prayer

from Hymns and songs for Bands of Hope

seeking the words for this song

By Katy Cox

Hello,

My mother lived in a childrens home, 1928-1938, and were often visited by a Band of Hope.

One of the songs which my mum remembers had the following words: Pure water is the drink for me'.

I am hoping that someone may know of this song and can send me the words and - even more exciting - perhaps there is a version on youtube.

Thank you very much

Katy

Here's one possibility Katy.  There was a hymn book called "Hymns and songs for Bands of Hope" published by the Band of Hope Union and hymn number 133 is "O Lord I lift my prayer to Thee".  Verse number 2 begins "Pure water is the drink for me".  It includes the tune too.
