1 O the blessings we receive,
When on Jesus we believe,
And are walking in the Spirit day by day;
When His word is our delight,
And our path is growing bright,
While by faith we learn to trust Him and obey.

O praise the Lord, for He is good;
O praise the Lord, our God above,
For He keeps us every hour,
And upholds us by His pow’r,
While we dwell within the sunshine of His love.

2 Precious blessings shall descend,
When before His throne we bend,
And the glory-cloud is resting o’er us there;
Every heart with joy is fill’d,
Every wave of sorrow still’d,
While we feel the hallow’d bliss of answer’d pray’r. [Refrain]

3 When the world is overcome,
And its battles fought and won,
When we see our Lord and Saviour in the sky;
How our hearts will overflow,
With the rapture we shall know,
When we meet Him in His kingdom by and by. [Refrain]
