Count Our Blessings
Letís count our blessings one by one,
Thank the LORD for all He has done;
HE has given us life, health, family, joy,
A habitable, beautiful earth to enjoy!
To each a unique personality and special talent in His service to employ.
Let us praise HIM for HIS loving kindness,
HIS loving forgiveness;
Alleluia LORD, YOU are Almighty GODís BELOVED SON,
Dying for our sins, you gave us redemption!
As our SAVIOUR, you make possible our salvation!
Loving GOD, You chose to show us compassion
Not condemnation, even though as wilful sinners
We have no justification!
Thank YOU, LORD for all our blessings,
Help us to appreciate YOUR goodness;
Thank YOU too for showing us the way to eternal life,
And walking us through as companion and guide;
Help us to emulate your humility,
With morally discerning eyes, help us yearn for eternity,
And not be bogged in the mire of immorality!
Knowing that we are like grass that withers,
Flower petals that fade and disappear!
Help us not to be deluded by the ego-- craving for greatness,
But look to YOU, LORD, for eternal happiness!
