50. COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

  1. When upon life’s billows you are tempest toss’d’

    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.

    Chorus:

    Count your blessings, name them one by one,

    Count your blessings, see what God hath done;

    Count your blessings. Name them one by one,

    And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

  2. Are you ever burden’d with a load of care?

    Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?

    Count your many blessings, ev’ry doubt will fly,

    And you will be 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,

    Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

  4. So amid the conflict, whether great or small,

    Do not be discourage, God is over all.

    Count your many blessings, angels will attend,

    Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

STEPS TO SALVATION
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
