Count your blessings......name them one by one......


  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 hath done.
    • Refrain:
      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.
      [*And it will surprise you what the Lord 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, every doubt will fly,
    And you will keep singing as the days go by.
  3. When you look at others with their lands and gold,
    Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
    Count your many blessings—wealth can never buy
    Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
  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.


I love this song. There have been times in my life when I have felt less than faithful, and certainly less than grateful. I sing this song often to myself when things just don't seem to be going the way "I" had intended for them to go.
I have SO MANY blessings in my life and sometimes you just have to sit down and COUNT them....and I promise you once you start counting them, you will realize you probably can't count that high.
I love the last verse....so amid the conflict whether great or small: do not be discouraged GOD is over all.

MY GOD knows all about my conflicts and trials in my life. I am THANKFUL to HIM and ALL of the COUNTLESS blessings I have in my life!!!!

Have you counted your blessings today?
