Drinking from My Saucer

By John Paul Moore

 

 

I've never made a fortune

And it's probably too late now.

But I don't worry about that much,

I'm happy anyhow.

And as I go along life's way,

I'm reaping better than I sowed.

I'm drinking from my saucer,

'Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

I don't have a lot of riches,

And sometimies the going's tough.

But I've got loved ones around me,

And that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,

And the mercies he's bestowed.

I'm drinking from my saucer,

'Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

I remember times when things went wrong,

My faith wore somewhat thin.

But all at once the dark clouds broke,

And the sun peeped through again.

So God, help me not to gripe

About the tough rows that I've hoed.

I'm drinking from my saucer,

'Cause my cup has overflowed.

 

If God gives me strength and courage

When the way grows steep and rough,

I'll not ask for other blessings,

I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy

To help others bear their loads.

Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,

'Cause my cup has overflowed.
