Surely My Cup Runneth Over

Jesus is …
The joy of my heart
The light of my life
The bright and morning star
My highest and best hope
The peace in my soul and
The praise in my mouth
There is none like Him

When I am down with the
cares of the world, feeling empty, or unloved
I turn to Jesus
He is my love, my comfort, my strength
an ever present help in the time of trouble
Though the world may turn it’s back on me,
or toss me out a castaway
Jesus never fails
and keeps his promises
Yea I will never leave you, nor forsake you,
Yea, I am with you always, even to the end of the world

When I am overwhelmed, tired and weary,
When I just don’t know if I can go on,
I turn to Jesus,
My kindest most loving friend
And snuggle down, pull the blankets up
around me, and talk to Jesus
for hours
He listens, responds
and I am comforted, refreshed, lifted up
And I go on my way again
There is none like Him,
No not one

When I have mountains to climb
and the climb is too steep for me
and my strength is gone
I cry out to Jesus
He comes quickly,
leaping lightly over all the bolders, obstacles and sharp
jagged edges
I have left in his way,
and embraces my wounded spirit in his strong arms of love
Till I am fit for the climb again
Filled with new power, higher praise,
deeper love,
… And mountains are moved
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me
Yea thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.

He is my glorious Lord
My dearest friend
My closest companion
My deepest love
The Saviour of my soul
The very center of my being
and heart
