Count your blessings name them one by one


One of the many favorite hymns I love to sing at church is count your blessings.  It is a hymn that puts so much into perspective when one is feeling lost and overwhelmed with the storms that life can bring into our lives.

As I continue to work on my health and try to manage everything else, I count my blessings each and every day.  I have a family who loves each other with all of our quirks and imperfections. There is always so much laughter in the home, even on bad days.  

I feel so blessed each day to be able to have an outside studio space to go  and create and spend additional time with my daughter in this space we share together.  To have my mom and brother living with me and we all help one another with the daily household chores and cooking.  

I usually find myself humming hymns that uplift me and I am reminded of Psalm 95:1-11 which in part saids, come, " let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation".

I sing songs of praise during the difficult and beautiful seasons in my life.  I hope that you can find comfort and be uplifted in reading the Psalm 95:1-11 as well as reading the beautiful lyrics to Count your blessings. I shared them below. 

  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 has done.
    • Refrain:
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      Count your blessings, see what God has done!
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      *Count your many blessings, see what God has done.
      [*And it will surprise you what the Lord has 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, every doubt will fly,
    And you will keep singing as the days go by.
  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 [*wealth can never buy]
    Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
  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.



Wishing you always  love and light into your life.
