One By One
Count the many reasons you have for giving thanks,
your every need is met and yet you'll never break the banks.
Blessings merit thankfulness every day you live,
name one who has hurt you...before you're blessed, forgive.
Them who God forgives need no second guessing.
One by one remember them while you're counting blessings.
By Christ's own wondrous sacrifice they too are sanctified.
One by one He names us...Forgive them, Lord, he cried.
