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 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 Lord, help me not to gripe, about the tough rows I have 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…

  1. Love this song. A young man in our church sings it. Great song.

  2. “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…”
    Indeed, it takes a lot of courage and God’s blessing of grace to hold on even when the road seems hopeless. Thanks for sharing, your poem is inspiring

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
