today's blessings

When upon life's billows you are tempted and tossed,
When you are discouraged thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings money cannot buy:
Your reward in heaven and your home on high.

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.
