Sunday, June 25, "Making Joyful Connections" with Rev. Sydney Magill Lindquist

Fill My Cup, Lord

Sometimes we all feel empty and in need. Often, when this feeling crashes over us, we reach out–seeking God or sometimes fulfillment in others, situations, circumstances or material things.  But when we truly open our eyes to the abundance around us all the time, we feel complete from the inside out.

In this version of the beautiful classic Christian hymn, Asha acknowledges asking for a shift in perspective, a better understanding of the truly abundant world in which we live, where our needs are met on a moment by moment basis. Instead of seeing the glass (or cup, in this case) as half-full or empty, we seek to know that the glass is indeed full, and we remember that the well of Source “never will run dry”.

Fill My Cup Lord
Composer, Richard Eugene Blanchard Sr.
(Revised Lyrics, A. Lightbearer)

 

Like the woman at the well, I was seeking
For fear and doubt had filled my eyes
And then I heard sweet Spirit speaking
“Drink from my well, that never will run dry”

Fill my cup, Lord. I lift it up, Lord.
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup. Fill it up and make me whole.

There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures gold and silver buy,
When all around are blessings they’re not seeing
Precious gifts that they are passing by

Fill my cup, Lord. I lift it up, Lord.
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.
Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more.
Fill my cup. Fill it up and make me whole.
