Another Singing Sunday...

because music speaks to us... and I just LOVE this song!


The Gossett Trio singing at Ripley Baptist Temple did a wonderful job on the song, but it does take the video a few stops during playing to load, ...but so worth it!


I Have Been Blessed

Verse 1:
When He moves among us all that He does
all of His mercy and all of His love
if the pen of the writer could write everyday
even this world could never contain
how I've been blessed

The warmth in winter the flowers in spring
the laughter of summer and the changing of leaves
the food on my table a good place to sleep
clothes on my back shoes on my feet
I have been blessed

Chorus:
I have been blessed God's so good to me
precious are His thoughts of you and me
no way I could count them there's not enough time
so I'll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good so good
I have been blessed

Verse 2:
Arms that will raise a voice that can talk
hands that can touch and legs that can walk
ears that can listen eyes that can see
oh I've got to praise Him as long as I breathe
I have been blessed

A father and mother who nurtured and raised
sisters and brother memories made
our pastor to lead us the altar to pray
stripes that can heal the blood that can save
I have been blessed

Chorus:
I have been blessed God's so good to me
precious are His thoughts of you and me
no way I could count them there's not enough time
so I'll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good so good
I have been blessed

Verse 3:
We live in a country the greatest on earth
our flag stands for freedom and what it is worth
she stands in the harbor Miss Liberty calls
all gave some but some gave all
for me to be blessed

He's my shoulder to lean on when I am down
the rock where He leads me when I'm overwhelmed
the place where He hides me under His wings
He's not just a song He's the reason I sing
I have been blessed

Chorus:
I have been blessed God's so good to me
precious are His thoughts of you and me
no way I could count them there's not enough time
so I'll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good so good
I have been blessed


I first heard this song at church for Thanksgiving, really liked it...so I went and found a good YouTube video so I could hear it more.  Then, two weeks ago, I was able to get Lois and India Rasquinha's new CD, Stand Still, and it has this song on it. (It is also available for single MP3 track download here or you can order their whole CD.)


O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Psalm 34:8
