When I Count My Blessings I count you twice ‘cuz it’s
a miracle come true that you’re even a part of my life
I have so much to be thankful for and I thank God
every day and every night but When I Count My Blessings
darling I always count you twice…well it’s true we
often get distracted with the world pulling us in many
different directions but I guess that’s life in the
big city still like a river that always finds its way
to the sea I always find my way back to you, you always
find your way back to me…love is not taken for
granted even when it’s not said often enough we are one
in the same like an ember to a flame and that’s one
thing I know will never change…I have so much to be
thankful for and I thank God every day and every night
but When I Count My Blessings I always, I always count
you twice!
