Count It All Joy

When temptations come, and I’m bowed down so low;
when my doubts arise and I’m tossed to and fro,
~
I’ll count it all joy, stand firm in the faith.
I’ll look to the Lord for a way of escape.
He gives me wisdom and strength to obey,
when I count it all joy, and patiently wait.
~
When the world says come, and my flesh is enticed;
when I’m drawn away by the sins of this life,
~
I’ll count it all joy, stand firm in the faith.
I’ll look to the Lord for a way of escape.
He gives me wisdom and strength to obey,
when I count it all joy, and patiently wait.
~
When I face attacks for my faith in the Lord,
then I think of Jesus and how he was scorned.
~
I’ll count it all joy, stand firm in the faith.
I’ll look to the Lord for a way of escape.
He gives me wisdom and strength to obey,
when I count it all joy, and patiently wait.
~
When I trust my Lord every step that I take,
then he gives me grace for each trial I face.
~
I’ll count it all joy, stand firm in the faith.
I’ll look to the Lord for a way of escape.
He gives me wisdom and strength to obey,
when I count it all joy, and patiently wait.
~
Count it all joy!
