Crowned and crowded with God’s blessings
Has my pathway been,
Every moment from His bounty
Something new;
I have tried to count them over,
But when I begin,
I can only stop and marvel at the view.


Countless blessings, countless blessings,
And blessings more to follow,
Praise His name!
I am lost in love and wonder,
For they far the stars outnumber,
And blessings more to follow,
Praise His name.

From His storehouse overflowing,
Like a king He gives,
And with lavish hand
My every need supplies;
Untold mercies every day from Him
My heart receives,
And to comprehend His goodness
Vainly tries.


Tho’ His love I cannot fathom,
Or His mercies count,
Or my debt of gratitude
To Him repay,
Hearts by sin and sorrow broken
Everywhere are found,
I can pass my blessings on
To cheer their way.


Pressing onward, ever onward,
Never looking back
Till I reach my home
In yonder sun-bright clime;
With my way to Him committed,
Nothing shall I lack
For I have the Blesser with me
All the time.
