My Portion and My Cup

My Portion and My Cup Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Coaching


My Portion and My Cup


“Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.” – Psalm 16:5


My portion and my cup

You alone are to me,

My treasure and my reward

For all eternity.


In the jewels of Your eyes

I see eternal Sonlight;

The truth of Your Word

Brightens the night.


Your sweet smile

Brings me joy and peace,

And to Your loving hands

All I am I release.


On the pathway You pave

I find sweet salvation;

In every step You lead

I feel pure celebration.


How can this be?

How can I find all in You?

How can You be sweeter

Than every dream come true?


Yet all this is so,

For You are Everything;

You are God and Creator,

Redeemer and King.


My portion and my cup

You alone are to me;

Everything You are,

Everything You will be.


So take my hand, Jesus,

Lead me on Your way,

Inspire my heart

With every word You say.


Allow me to see Heaven

In Your beaming smile;

Precious is Your pathway,

Every step, every mile.


Invite me to get lost

In Your eyes of Sonlight,

Precious jewels of Heaven

Shining ever bright.


Yes, my portion and cup

You alone are to me,

My treasure and reward

For all eternity.
