Sunday's Song- Count Your Blessings

I have definitely been counting my blessings lately. So, when I came upon this song, I thought it was very fitting for today, even though I haven't heard it in a long time.

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 hath done.
Count your blessings;
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings;
See what God hath done.

2. Are you ever burdened with a 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 hath done.
Count your blessings;
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings;
See what God hath 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 hath done.
Count your blessings;
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings;
See what God hath 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 hath done.
Count your blessings;
Name them one by one.
Count your many blessings;
See what God hath done.

Nancy you need to know that your Sunday song posts are wonderful to me. They take me back to childhood days and the words are always spot on to how I'm feeling at the moment.

Thanks again for your encouragement my friend :)

Hi Nancy! I loved the lyrics so much, I had to look up the tune on Youtube!.. I have never heard this song before, but it is a way of life for me! Through any hard times or situations I face, the FIRST thing I try to remember to do, is to COUNT MY BLESSINGS!.. Well, there were quite a few versions of this, but I found a nice one, I think! I may just post the video on MY blog today, but I will give you a shout-out for the inspiration to do so! ((hugs)) and God bless.. ~tina

I took your advise and counted mine and it was the right thing to think of the things you have and not what you think is missing.

Lovely, and important words and thoughts..
