I'm almost 73 years of age.
As a boy I took some piano lessons in the home of a Scottish church minister called Rev, William Gardner Hunter who lived in the manse at 17 Traquaire Drive, Glasgow.
One day he told me an amazing story about how he composed the chorus you refer to.
It is such a simple little chorus which became well known throughout the world called: " My cups full and running over" or simply, "Running Over"
The words ofcourse are taken from the Bible to express a persons joy.
The little story about "Running Over" remaned with me and in my late thirties I to became a Christian.
I have a web site if you care to visit it.
www.going4broke.org
Hope this is helpful.

As you a referring to my Grandfather William Gardner Hunter, I can now put your minds at rest. I have in front of me Cross and Crown Melodies compiled by W. Gardner Hunter Preacher Pianist.

Running Over

Verse 1

Since the Saviour came to this heart of mine
My cups filled and running over
Filling my poor soul with his joy divine
My cup's filled and running over.

Chorus

Running over, running over,
My cups filled and running over
Since the lord saved me
I'm as happy as can be
My cup's filled and running over

Verse 2

With my Lord so Dear
I have naught to fear
My cup's filled and running over
Though my way be drear
He is ever near
My cup's filled and running over

Chorus

Verse 3

Even though I walk
Through the death's darksome vale
My cup's filled and running over
Christ my lord shall be
My comfort still
My cup's filled and running over

Chorus

Verse 4

Sinner seek the Lord
Trust his precious word
While the Angels round you hover
Heaven's Bells will ring
And you then will sing
My Cup's filled and running over

Chorus

I met an old age pensioner lady today on the Sound of Kintyre bus and she said her father was a minister and that he wrote the chorus of 'Running Over'. Been singing it to myself all day since. Sweet memories of childhood singing it in Sunday School!
