There are always two sides the good and the bad,
The dark & the light, the sad & the glad.
But in looking back over the good & the bad,
We're aware of the number of good things we've had,

And in counting our blessings, we find when we'er through,
We've no reason at all to complain or be blue.
So thank God for the good things He has already done,
And be grateful to Him for the battles you've won,

And know that the same God who helped you before,
Is ready & willing to help you once more.
Then with faith in your hearts,
reach out for God's Hand
and accept what He sends,
though you can't understand.

For our Father in Heaven always knows what is best,
And if you trust in His wisdom, your life will be blessed.
So always remember that whateverbetide you,
You are never alone, for God is beside you.
