Life's Billows

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

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does your 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.

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.
