Drinking from my Saucer

by Jimmy Dean


DRINKING FROM MY SAUCER

I've never made a fortune,
And it's probably too late now,
But I don't worry 'bout that much,
I'm happy anyhow.
As I go along life's journey,
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 sometimes the going's tough,
But I've got three kids that love me
That makes me rich enough.
I just thank God for His blessings
And the mercy He's bestowed,
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when everything went wrong
And my faith got a little bit thin,
Then all at once the dark clouds broke
And that ole sun peaked through again.
So, Lord, help me not to gripe
'Bout the tough rows that I've hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

And if God gives me strength and courage
When the way grows steep and rough,
I'll not ask for other blessings
I'm already blest enough.
And may I never be too busy
To help another bear his load,
Then I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed.
