I Have Been Blessed

I heard this song at Youth Camp this past summer and I have looked for the words to it ever since I heard it. I finally found them! This song has been such a blessing to me. Even with all that our family has been through in these past several months, I have still been blessed!!! Hope you enjoy this song!!!

Verse 1:
When He moves among us all that He does
All of His mercy and all of His love
And the pen of the writer could write everyday
Even this world could never contain
How I have been blessed.

Verse 2:
The warmth in the winter the flowers in spring
The laughter in summer and the changing of leaves
The food on my table a good place to sleep
Clothes on my back and shoes on my feet
I have been blessed.

Chorus:
I have been blessed God's so good to me
Precious are His thoughts of you and me
No way I could count them there's not enough time
So I'll just thank Him for being so kind
God has been good so good
I have been blessed.

Verse 3:
Arms that will raise a voice that can talk
hands that can touch and legs that can walk
Ears that can listen eyes that can see
Oh I've got to praise Him as long as I breathe
I have been blessed.

Verse 4:
A father and mother who nurtured and raised
A brother and sister memories made
Our pastor to lead us the altar to pray
Stripes that can heal the blood that can save
I have been blessed.

Chorus.

Verse 5:
We live in a country the greatest on earth
Our flag stands for freedom and what it is worth
She stands in the harbor Miss Liberty calls
All have gave some but some have gave all
For me to be blessed.

Verse 6:
He's my shoulder to lean on when I am down
The Rock where He leads me when I'm overwhelmed
The place where He hides me under His wings
He's not just a song He's the reason I sing
I have been blessed.

Chorus.

I truly have been blessed!!!

I was just wondering where i could get an audio copy of this song, the first time i heard it was at a youth conference in south carolina, and i couldnt help but cry my eyes out, i have truly been blessed. i was raised in a broken home with an alcoholic father; and a mom that decided to leave the family on my 10th birthday... i could complain, but God has truly blessed me!!!
