Count the Mercies!

Count the Mercies

Count the mercies! count the mercies!
Number all the gifts of love;
Keep a daily, faithful record
Of the comforts from above.

Look at all the lovely green spots
In life's weary desert way;
Think how many cooling fountains
Cheer our fainting hearts each day.

Count the mercies! count the mercies!
Count the mercies though the trials
Seem to number more each day;
Count the trias too, as mercies,
Add them to the grand array.

Trials are God's richest blessings,
Sent to prompt our upward flight
As the eagles' next, all broken,
Makes them fly to loftier heights.

Count the mercies! count the mercies!
That bring heaven within our sight,
Let us number all our jewels,
Let us estimate their worth;
Let us thank the gracious Giver,
Strewing blessings over the earth;
Let our hearts overflow with gladness.

Let us tell the wonders over,
Till our multiplying treasures
Seem a countless boundless store;
Then let praises, grateful praise,
Be our language evermore.
