   Tune: Edwin Excell

VERSE 1
A                                G7  F#7 G7
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,

E                E7                A   D  A
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,

A                                    G7  F#7 G7
Count your many blessings, name them one by  one,

E              E7                  A   E    A
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

A                               E   E7 E
Count your blessings, name them one by one,

E7                             A   D    A
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!

A          E     D    E7
Count your blessings, name them one by one,

A                  D              A     E7  A 
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


VERSE 2
A                            G7   F#7 G7
Are you ever burdened with a load of  care?

E                E7               A      D  A
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?

A                                 G7   F#7  G7
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,

And you will keep singing as the days go by.


VERSE 3
A                                  G7    F#7 G7
When you look at others with their lands and gold,

E                E7                    A      D  A
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;

A                                     G7   F#7  G7
Count your many blessings. Wealth can nev -er  buy

E              E7                A    E  A
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,

E                E7         A   D   A
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;

A                                 G7   F#7  G7
Count your many blessings, angels will att-end,

E                E7               A   D     A
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
