Don’t Forget Your Blessings

I love this song. I know I posted it once before a couple of years ago. It is not the familiar “Count Your Blessings” many know, but this version, sung by Welsh singer, Aled Jones, is really lovely, and sums it all up. The lyrics are below the video.


Count your blessings one by one,
When dawn appears and day has just begun.
They will light your heart with happiness,
Make each hour bright and bring you gladness.

Count your blessings one by one,
When twilight falls and toil of day is done,
And in sweet dreams they’ll come again to you,
If you will count your blessings each day through.

Count your blessings while you may.
For we are here but little time to stay.
All around are friends, sincere and true.
Lovely things abound, just waiting for you.

Count your blessings while you may,
The big or small, whichever comes your way,
For then you’ll find this world a place of love
If you will count your blessings from above.

    Beautiful song and beautiful voice. I’ve never heard it before – it sounds like a Christmas song – or maybe a song from a Christmas musical like A Christmas Carol by Dickens? I wonder who wrote it.

  2. Ingrid Schlueter says:

    Wiki says it was written by Richard Morgan & Edith Temple, c.1946, and sung by various well known singers and choirs. Apparently, it’s not from any musical. I found several different renditions on YouTube. I love Aled Jones’ sacred recordings and his music on Songs of Praise, the BBC program. I wish we had something like it here. The Gaithers on PBS are fine for Gospel music, but we have nothing with sacred hymns here, performed with excellence.
