403. 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 hath 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 - xee 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]

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]

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]
