Count Me

A few years ago I was looking for a song for our small church choir to learn for an upcoming special meeting. I love to try new songs so I was just thumbing through the hymnal trying whatever caught my eye. It didn’t take long for me to find this song. I fell in love with at first playing, and I have never lost my love for it.

The tune and feel of the song is very upbeat, and isn’t that what serving the Lord is about – a joyous duty? 

When you need a reminder about how wonderful it is to serve and praise God, come to this song.

When you count the ones who love the Lord,
Count me, count me;
When you count up those who trust His Word,
Count me, count me.

Refrain

Count me with the children of the heav’nly King;
Count me with the servants who would service bring;
Count me with the ransomed who His praises sing;
Count me, count me.

When you count up those who’re saved by grace,
Count me, count me;
Who have found in Christ a hiding place,
Count me, count me.

When you count up those who do the right,
Count me, count me;
Who are walking in the Gospel light,
Count me, count me.

When you count up those who forward press,
Count me, count me;
Who shall gain the crown of righteousness,
Count me, count me.
