Count on Him - or When you long for Christ to blessd

Post by NelsonFarai » Tue May 02, 2017 10:23 pm

I am looking for the lyrics of the song "Count on Him by Ada R. Habershon
I can remember the chorus and part of the first verse. Please help if you know the rest of the lyrics. Thanks

The first verse starts like -;

When you long for Christ to bless, count on Him,
In your time of sore distress, count on Him .......

The Chorus
Count on Him, count on Him,
Every hour of every day
Count on Him, count on Him He says you may

Hi NelsonFaral

Although I couldn't discover the lyrics, I throughly enjoyed researching Ada Habershon's life
When searching for your request, I found the following information

M.L. Stocks wrote the music for Ada Habershon's Count On Him In 1910.
copyright Aug.8, 1910; 2 c. Sept 13, 1910 E239162; Charles M. Alexander, Philadelphia PA

Instead of Count On Him, When You Long For Christ To Bless is listed in her discography
http://www.hymntime.com/tch/bio/h/a/b/habershon_ar.htm

In the search using "When you long for Christ to bless" I found the song would be in the hymnal - Work and Worship #d69
http://hymnary.org/text/when_you_long_f ... t_to_bless

Some of the lyric detectives have collections of Hymnals so I'm in hopes someone has this one

Thank you for posting. Lord bless

When you long for Christ to Bless
Count on him
In your time of sore distress
Count on him
When no other help is near
If your way be dark and drear
When your heart is full of fear
Count on him

Chorus
Count on him
Count on him
Every hour of everyday
Count on him
Count on him
He says you may

2 Is it wisdom that you lack
Count on him
Does the enemy attack
Count on him
Needed grace he will bestow
Gives you victory over the foe
Tells you just where you should go
Count on him
I will try to send the rest to you soon
