Dark days ago (dark days ago)
I walked all alone (walked all alone)
I thought for my sins I could never atone
But then I was loved when I heard a voice say
Look and I'll turn all your darkness to day
Then I knelt down to pray (knelt down to pray.)

Now my cup runneth over (cup runneth over)
Life is so sweet (life is so sweet)
All I could hope for to make it complete
Down lifes silvery pathway He's walkin' with me
My cup runneth over, no sorrow I'll see
My Jesus loves me (Jesus loves me.)

--- Instrumental ---

My future looks bright (future looks bright)
My heart is at ease (heart is at ease)
And every night while down on my knees
I thank the good Lord who smiles from above
And the happiess wraps me around like a glove
For I have His love ( I have his love.)

My cup runneth over (cup runneth over)
Life is so sweet (life is so sweet)
All I could hope for to make it complete
Down lifes silvery pathway He's walkin' with me
My cup runneth over, from sin I am free
My Jesus saved me (Jesus saved me...)
