Count Your Blessings

 

1.       When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed

When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost

Count your many blessings; name them one by one

And it will surprise you what the Lord has done

 

Chorus

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your blessings; see what God has done

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your many blessings; see what God has done

 

2.       Are you ever burdened with load of care

Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear

Count your many blessings; ev'ry doubt will fly

And you will be singing as the days go by

 

Chorus

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your blessings; see what God has done

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your many blessings; see what God has done

 

3.       When you look at others with their lands and gold

Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold

Count your many blessings; money cannot buy

Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high

 

Chorus

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your blessings; see what God has done

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your many blessings; see what God has done

 

4.       So amid the conflict, whether great or small

Do not be discouraged; God is over all

Count your many blessings; angels will attend

Help and comfort give you to your journey's end

 

Chorus

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your blessings; see what God has done

Count your blessings; name them one by one

Count your many blessings; see what God has done
