Representative Text

1 Countless praises fill my soul for the Lord who made me whole,
And whose love I shall proclaim forevermore;
For the blessings that are mine, coming from the heart divine
Are the numberless as the sands on the shore.

Refrain:
Are the numberless as the sands on the shore!
Oh, praise His name forevermore;
For the blessings free He daily sends to me
Are the numberless as the sands on the shore.

2 He is always at my side, sharing trials that betide,
Ever ready failing courage to renew,
Cheering, guiding on the way—oh, His blessings ev’ry day
Are the numberless as the sands on the shore. [Refrain]

3 Souls in bondage, look and live! now your hearts to Jesus give,
Then in sorrow you shall languish nevermore;
He is far the best of friends, for the blessings that He sends
Are the numberless as the sands on the shore. [Refrain]
