Written By Johnson Oatman
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discourage, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings-name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
When you look at others with their lands of 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.
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.
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, see what God hath done.
