Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Every day
Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Lord I pray

Ruminate a moment that we woke with roofs above our heads
Necessity we take for granted in snug and cozy bed
Luxuriate with fresh coffee contemplate job we may hate
Choose to embrace fulfilling life or exist as walking dead

Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Every day
Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Lord I pray

Omnipresent gray depression that controls and weighs us down
Recognizing life’s blessings first step in turning things around
Persistent amorphous weight ruthlessly smashes to the ground
Many living sans joy or hope pray that soon blessings are found

Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Every day
Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Lord I pray

Far too many people struggling with no joy down in their hearts
Hard to fathom joy in living with ocean so deep and dark
Countless brothers and sisters imperiled; swim with fearsome sharks
Small vessel prepped for stormy seas on great journey can embark

Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Every day
Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Lord I pray

Mortal life’s imperfect regardless of over stated hype
Most live near center position in continuum of life
Just acknowledging our blessings can reduce anger and strife
Recognizing opportunity for love and joy that’s ripe

Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Every day
Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Counting blessings, Lord I pray

Goodnight
