Lyrics

Count Your Blessings

When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

refrain

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

refrain

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

refrain

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

refrain

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journeys end.

refrain


Make Me a Blessing

Out in the highways and byways of life,
many are weary and sad; (are weary and sad;)
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
making the sorrowing glad.

refrain

Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,
Out of my life (out of my life) May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray, (I pray Thee, my Savior,)
Make me a blessing to someone today.

refrain

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love;
Tell of His pow'r to forgive: (His pow'r to forgive.)
Others will trust Him if only you prove
true ev'ry moment you live.

refrain

Give as 'twas given to you in your need;
Love as the Master loved you; (the Master loved you.)
Be to the helpless a helper indeed;
Unto your mission be true.

refrain

Showers of Blessing

There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

refrain

Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

refrain

There shall be showers of blessing,
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

refrain

There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

refrain

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God were confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

refrain

There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.

refrain


       

We made a trip to Mexico every year of the band's existence. This page refers to visits to the border towns of Mexico.

 

Many Pictures coming....

 Tell your Salvation Army friends about this website. Chapter Ten about our Seattle Temple Corps Experience is going to be very interesting, but you have to read every chapter in order to understand Chapter 10. You won't be disappointed.
