COUNT THEM AS BLESSINGS

 

 

COUNT THEM AS BLESSINGS

   

     

Count them as blessings,

From the Father above,

Never take them for granted,

He gave them with love.

 

Give God thanks for the fathers,

Who takes serious their roll,

In teaching their children,

And directing their souls.

 

Give thanks to the Lord,

For the gift of a good spouse,

Who honors their position,

Making pleasant their house.

 

Lift arms up in praise,

When Godís first in their life,

Before father or mother,

Children, husband or wife.

 

Send up the thanksgivings,

For the off-springs that believe,

Who continue to faithfully serve God,

When they grow up and leave.

 

Give God the glory,

For the gift of His Son,

Whose blood can cleanse the soul,

Of each and everyone.

 

Sing out His praises,

To those living in sin,

Tell of His grace,

And the life without end.

 

Pray without ceasing,

Praise His most holy name,

Remembering to give Him thanks,

From where the gifts came.
