And count the blessings God employs, much greater than pure gold,
The gifts within His creation, the untouched land and trees,
The waters with deep hydration, the tender, soothing breeze,
The forests untouched by mankind, a habitat for life,
Protected by the Mastermind, who shields them all from strife,
For cities and towns we live in, for things we eat and drink,
For sharing, loving and helping, when lives hang on the brink,
Through laughter and tears we give thanks, God gives us a way out,
When we seem to fall through the ranks, His Word turns us about.
Through sickness and health He molds us, the potter and His clay,
With His strong hands He enfolds us, and brings us through each day,
He guides us through the dark shadows, and leads us safely home,
He offers us a sweet repose, upon a royal throne,
So turn your thoughts to thankfulness, for all that God has done,
To alleviate your distress, and bring you safely home.
