Thought For The Day

A childhood favorite, still wonderful after 40+ years. If you're like me, you'll be humming this for the rest of the day!

Count Your Blessings
Hymn Lyrics by Johnson Oatman, Jr. (1856-1922)

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.

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 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.

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.

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.


Have a wonderful day! :o)

Hugs,
