Oh, my cup is ov­er­flow­ing
With the good­ness of the Lord;
I am trust­ing in His mer­cy,
And re­joic­ing in His Word.


I have climbed the rug­ged mount­ain,
On its sum­mit now I stand;
Hallelujah! hal­le­lu­jah!
I have en­tered Beu­lah land.

From the sigh­ing and the long­ing,
That so oft my heart op­pressed,
With my Sav­ior and Re­deem­er
Now in per­fect peace I rest.


There’s a pa­lace o’er the ri­ver
And its jas­per walls I see,
And among its ma­ny man­sions
There is one pre­pared for me.


I have climbed the rug­ged mount­ain,
But my Sav­ior led the way;
Unto Him shall be the glo­ry,
When I reach eter­nal day.
