I HAVE BEEN BLESSED

Mike Compton

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've been blessed

Verse 2:
The warmth in 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:
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 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 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

  7. where can i find the sheet music for this song. oh by the way my friend wrote two more verses and the are wonderful. here they are...

    knowing the truth
    when i desevere death
    hearing his word
    and righteousness
    he loves me all day
    and protects me all night
    always forgives me
    when i am not right
    i have been blessed

    out of a billion
    people on earth
    he chose to love me
    even before birth
    being elected
    to run the race
    experincing him
    and all of his grace
    i have been blessed

    it is really good. i love her verses.

  20. Mike Compton wrote the song and has the copy right and is part of the group called Keen Mountain Brothers.

    Here is a link to the church he attends:
    http://keenmountainchurch.com/

    You can contact him there!

    We as christians should not make money off someones else's work without first getting their permission. How can you record a song then make money from the song without knowing who wrote the song and pay for rights to record the song? Is this not stealing?

    1. Thank you for the information about the author. To clear things up, I did not record the song, and this website makes no money. I am not stealing or profiting from anyone's work, and now that I know who the author is, I will gladly give credit where credit is due. My only goal is to share great music with the world, and I'm sure the author has the same goal.

  30. Solid Rock Communications looks to have it but the link to their "store" didn't work. www.churchchoirmusic.com has the song but not with accompaniment. I will try calling Champion Baptist College or affiliated church to see if I can get more info.
