I Have Been Blessed- Lyrics and Chords


Took me a long time to type all this out but it's so hard to find the music for this. My friend April needed a copy but I decided to post it here too just in case anyone else needed it as well :)


I Have Been Blessed


Verse 1: 

C                                                         Am

When He moves among us all, that He does 

     F                             G

all of His mercy, and all of His love 

                   C                           Am

and the pen of the writer could write everyday 

    F                              G

even this world could never contain 

                            C
how I've been blessed 




Verse 2: 
                        C                                 Am

The warmth in winter, the flowers in spring 
                        F                                              G

the laughter in summe,r and the changing of leaves 
                        C                                 Am     

the food on my table, a good place to sleep 
                        F                                  G

clothes on my back, and shoes on my feet 
                        C
I have been blessed 




Chorus: 
                        F                                  G

I have been blessed, God's so good to me 
                        C                                 Am

precious are His thoughts of you and me 
                        F                                              G

no way I could count them, there's not enough time 
                 C                                        Am

so I'll just thank Him for being so kind 
F                                  G

God has been good, so good 
                        C
I have been blessed 




Verse 3: 
                        C                                 Am

Arms that will raise, a voice that can talk 
                        F                                  G
hands that can touch, and legs that can walk 

                        C                     Am

ears that can listen, eyes that can see 
                        F                                  G

oh I've got to praise Him as long as I breathe 
                        C
I have been blessed 




Verse 4: 
                        C                                    Am

A father and mother, who nurtured and raised 
                        F                      G                    

a brother and sister, memories made 
                        C                     Am

our pastor to lead us, the altar to pray 
                        F                                  G

stripes that can heal, the blood that can save 
                        C
I have been blessed 




Chorus: 
                        F                                  G        

I have been blessed, God's so good to me 
                        C                                 Am

precious are His thoughts of you and me 
                        F                                              G

no way I could count them, there's not enough time 
                        C                                 Am

so I'll just thank Him for being so kind 
                        F             G

God has been good, so good 
                        C
I have been blessed 




Verse 5: 
                        C                                 Am                             

We live in a country, the greatest on earth 
                                    F                                  G

our flag stands for freedom, and what it is worth 
                                    C                     Am

she stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls 
                        F                                  G
all have gave some, but some have gave all 
                          C

for me to be blessed 


KEY CHANGE TO D



Verse 6: 
                                    D                                 Bm

He's my shoulder to lean on, when I am down 
                                    G                                 A

the rock where He leads me, when I'm overwhelmed 
                                    D                                 Bm

the place where He hides me, under His wings 
                        G                                 A

He's not just a song , He's the reason I sing 
                        D
I have been blessed 




Chorus: 
                        G                                 A        

I have been blessed, God's so good to me 
                        D                                 Bm

precious are His thoughts of you and me 
                        G                                             A

no way I could count them, there's not enough time 
                        D                                 Bm

so I'll just thank Him for being so kind 
                        G                     A

God has been good, so good 
                        D
I have been blessed

  7. Oh my! This is just perfect! I'm a growing pianist and I love this song so I tinkered out the tune by myself and wrote out the notes, well my struggle came in adding chords I don't know how to place them in yet or if it's just by ear and how you like it. But these fit in perfectly with my notes, we may have even had the melody written out the same way! I may have a few notes wrong though, I did do the song to my ears and without a few up and down notes to avoid sounding contemporary! But this is such a blessing! And the funny thing is, you said your friend April needed this, my piano teachers name is April �� thanks again, stay strong in the Lord!
