Lyrics

We’re count­ing the bless­ings, our joys we re­cord,
The won­der­ful mer­cies like sun­beams out­poured;
But let us re­mem­ber while prais­ing the Lord,
Somebody else needs a bless­ing.

Refrain

Somebody else needs a bless­ing,
Somebody else needs a bless­ing;
We’ll let our lights shine to His glo­ry di­vine,
Somebody else needs a bless­ing.

We’ll go, like the Sav­ior, to com­fort the sad;
With love’s heal­ing por­tion we’ll make oth­ers glad,
Until, with fresh ver­dure, life’s des­erts are clad;
Somebody else needs a bless­ing.

Refrain

We’ll tell the old sto­ry again and again;
Salvation for sin­ners, good will un­to men,
Till Gos­pel songs ec­ho from moun­tain to glen;
Somebody else needs a bless­ing.
