Counting Your Blessings Counting Your Blessings

Count Your Blessings Johnson Oatman, Jr., pub.1897

  1. 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 has done.
    • Refrain:
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      Count your blessings, see what God has done!
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      *Count your many blessings, see what God has done.
      [*And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.]
  2. 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.
  3. When you look at others with their lands and gold,
    Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
    Count your many blessings—*money cannot buy [*wealth can never buy]
    Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
  4. So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
    Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
    Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
    Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
    Tel uw zegeningen - Joh. de Heer 256

    Als op’s levens zee de stormwind om u loeit.
    Als ge tevergeefs uw arme hart vermoeit.
    Tel uw zegeningen tel ze één voor één
    En ge zegt verwonderd: Hij liet nooit alleen.

    Refrein:
    Tel uw zegeningen. Tel ze één voor één.
    Tel ze alle en vergeet er geen.
    Tel ze alle noem ze één voor één,
    En ge ziet Gods liefde dan door alles heen.

    Drukken’s levens zorgen u soms zwaar ter neer.
    Schijnt het kruis te zwaar u, zeg het aan de Heer,
    Tel uw zegeningen, wil op Jezus zien,
    Dan zal ‘t harte zingen en de zorgen vliên

    Refrein:
    Tel uw zegeningen. Tel ze één voor één.
    Tel ze alle en vergeet er geen.
    Tel ze alle noem ze één voor één,
    En ge ziet Gods liefde dan door alles heen.

    Zo in alle moeiten, zorgen zonder tal,
    Wees toch nooit ontmoedigd, God is overal,
    Tel uw zegeningen, Eng’len luist’ren toe,
    Troost en hulp schenkt Hij u,
    volg dan blij te moe.

    Refrein:
    Tel uw zegeningen. Tel ze één voor één.
    Tel ze alle en vergeet er geen.
    Tel ze alle noem ze één voor één,
    En ge ziet Gods liefde dan door alles heen.

Не е страшно да си луд, страшното е ако го осъзнаваш. Думите могат да бъдат опасни. През повечето време предпочитаме да говорим кратко и с недомлъвки. Пропускаме много – има заличени места в езиковото ни общуване. Може би приемаме, че празнините ще бъдат запълнени от слушателя или че пропуснатото не е съществено. Вероятно не се замисляме, но и в двата случая има голяма разлика между това, което мислим, че сме казали и това, което слушателят мисли, че сме имали предвид, и това, което в крайна сметка е разбрал.
