Name Blessings One by One

We sang this hymn in church yesterday. It was definitely the reminder that I needed as sometimes I count others' blessings and not my own. I've been a bit down, as of late, and am grateful for these words of truth that strengthened me when I was in need. They are a good reminder to all of us.

Count Your Many Blessings
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 suprise you what the Lord 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 be singing as the days go by.

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
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.
