My Cup Has Overflowed : )

My Cup Has Overflowed

I Drink From My Saucer

I've never made a fortune,
and I'll never make one now,
But it really doesn't matter
'cause I'm happy anyhow.

As I go along my journey
I'm reaping better than I've showed.
I'm drinking from the saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

I don't have a lot of riches,
And sometimes the going's tough
But with kin and friends to love me
I think I'm rich enough.

I thank God to the blessings
That His mercy has bestowed.
I'm drinking from the saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

He gives me strength and courage
When the way grows steep and rough,
I'll not ask for other blessings for
I'm already blessed enough.

May we never be too busy
To help bear another load.
Then we'll all be drinking from the saucer
When our cups have overflowed.

~(c) John Moore, 1970~

DD..At my church I used to attend in Az, they sang it as a song, I have it on a cd. I cry every time I hear it. Those words ring so true. Thanks for posting them

I know I've read this sometime in the past but my memory is getting kinda' foggy. This is a beautiful piece, thanks for refreshing my memory.

Your Welcome : ) I liked it too and just wanted to share it. Looks like maybe you and I are the only two who read it so far ; )
