I lift my heart to­day in praise
To Him who loves me so,
Whose mer­cy crown­eth all my days,
And makes my cup o’er­flow.
O have I loved Him as I should
For all His bless­ings free?
Praise God who giv­eth naught but good,
For He is good to me!


I’ll count my bless­ings—
Count them o’er and o’er—
I’ll tell my Fa­ther’s good­ness—
I will love Him more,
I’ll count my bless­ings, boun­ti­ful and free—
Yet I can ne­ver count them all—
So good is God to me!

I thank Him for un­cloud­ed skies—
For love be­yond my ken—
That when my path in sha­dow lies,
The sun­shine comes again.
I thank Him for the hopes ful­filled—
For ev­ery an­swered plea,
That though life was not all I willed,
My God is good to me!


I go to meet an­oth­er year,
With faith no doubt can dim,
God reign­eth, and I will not fear,
But trust my way with Him.
Then if that way be bright or dark,
Let peace un­shak­en be!
And let me, like the soar­ing lark,
Sing God is good to me!
