Drink From the 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 for 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.
