Count Your Blessings | Sebastian Demrey & Jimmy Lahaie

I remember singing this hymn as a teenager with very few ‘cares’ and perhaps not really relating to the lyrics as I do now. With so many issues of life staring at us in the face, it is very easy to complain, worry and become hopeless. However, we must remind ourselves constantly that we do have many things to be thankful for. What you have in abundance is someone’s miracle!

 

Count Your Blessings!

When you are tempted to groan in complaint,

Count your blessings.

When you think you should be farther in life than you are,

Count your blessings.

When it seems what you have is small compared to your neighbour’s,

Count your blessings.

When you are surmounted with the cares of this world,

Count your blessings.

When what tomorrow holds fill your mind with worry,

Count your blessings.

Yes, if you can name your blessings,

Go ahead and name them.

Some people don’t have what you have,

What you have is their own answer to prayers,

That’s why you have to count your blessings.

The binding of two hearts

The coming together of two bodies

The union of two minds 

The synergy of two destinies

The working together of two opinions

The agreement of two variances

The harmony of two individualities

The connection between two personalities

Marriage may be between two persons

But it must find a singular meeting ground 

One plus one is always greater than one minus one

Keep the Marriage fire burning!

Such that if you put your cup of hot tea on a table and don’t tell anyone whether you are having a hot or cold beverage, they know without your telling. What a way to announce oneself, eh?
