The Cup of Life

The cup of life is running o’er

With such unending wealth,

From golden sun and diamond stars

To ruby glow of health,

The emerald found in grassy field,

The blue topaz of sky,

The opalescent waterfall,

With rainbow bending nigh....

These things we take for granted when

We should kneel down and pray,

“Our Father, thank Thee for Thy love

And for this precious day.”

Look all around you at the gems

God’s artistry has wrought.

Drink from the wellspring cup of life,

No royal treasure bought.
