Quite ordinary is a cup.
So we can drink, we lift it up.
Perhaps you have a favorite
And like to always drink from it.
In the Bible cups are mentioned.
To teach us is their intention.
To give a cup of water cold’
Has its own reward, we are told.
Are you able, Jesus asked,
To drink my cup as your task?
The clueless disciples said yes.
Its suffering they did not guess.
At the Last Supper Jesus said,
My broken body is this bread.
Drink this cup to remember me.
My blood is the covenant, you see.
In Gethsemane Jesus prayed
Not drinking His cup would be okayed.
Then, not My will but Thine be done.
His agony our salvation won..
We each have a spiritual cup,
In faith we need to lift it up.
Thy will be done we need to pray.
Then His face we will see one day.
