156 - Count Your Blessings

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 Yahweh hath done.

 

Chorus:

Count your blessings, name

them one by one. Count your

blessings, see what Yah hath

done. Count your blessings,

name them one by one. Count

your many blessings, see what

Yah hath done.

 

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.

 

When you look at others with

their lands and gold, think

that Yah has promised you

His wealth untold. Count

your many blessings, money

cannot buy, your reward in

heaven nor your home on high.

 

So amid the conflict, whether

great or small, do not be

discouraged, Yah is over all.

Count your many blessings,

angels will attend, help and 

comfort give you to your 

journey's end.
