Drinking From My Saucer

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. 

Haven't got a lot of riches, 
and sometimes the going's tough. 
But I've got loving ones around me, 
and that makes me rich enough. 

I thank God for his blessings, 
and the mercies He has bestowed. 
I'm drinking from my saucer, 
'cause my cup has overflowed. 

O, Remember times when
things went wrong, 
My faith wore somewhat thin. 
but all at once the dark clouds broke, 
and sun peeped through again. 

So Lord, 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 & 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.
