Pure water is the drink for me

seeking the words for this song

Title page of Hymns and Songs for Bands of Hope
Lord I lift my prayer
from Hymns and songs for Bands of Hope

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.

    You can look at it in the archive.org archive at:-  https://archive.org/details/hymnsandsongsfor00banduoft
