Count Your Blessings...

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him." Eph. 1:3-4
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.

COUNT YOUR BLESSING...NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
COUNT YOUR 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 keep singing as the days go by.

COUNT YOUR BLESSING...NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
COUNT YOUR 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.
Wealth can never buy your reward in heaven,
nor your home on high.

COUNT YOUR BLESSING...NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS...SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE
So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey's end.

COUNT YOUR BLESSING...NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS...SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE

I love this song. I saw the words and couldn't help myself and started singing it in my head! I adore the pictures you posted with it. They are just gorgeous!
