It makes it hard to count your blessings
When all you have is sadness, depressing
Sometimes so many things get you down
Making it feel like you will drown

You know you shouldn’t give in to depression
But it over whelms you in succession
Soon the tears begin to flow
Crying and sadness are all you know

It makes you feel so very alone
It makes you wonder for what to atone
You know God is there by your side
But still you feel so empty inside

All you need is a gentle word
One to lift your spirit upward
A loving word to escape the pit
But you wonder if you deserve it

And yet the Word is spoken
And the depression is broken
The Bible says, “For God so loved”
He sent His Son, so beloved

Jesus came, He lived and died
He rose again and with us abides
He knows and understands what we feel
His ear is open to our every appeal

Start counting your blessings
With your sins confessing
And with grace and mercy from above
The very first blessing is God’s love

If you let it healing begins to flow
And pretty soon you begin to know
All the blessings God has given
With His love you are forgiven

And you count your blessings one by one
Giving thanks for all God has done
You know He walks by your side
And you know His love deep inside

And though life will sometimes get us down
And sadness may within abound
If we can remember to count on God’s love
Then healing will flow from heaven above
