Count It All Joy

This song is by Debbie McClendon and appears on the album Count It All Joy (1987).

Perilous times have come upon us
It's in the news today
They're sayin' the world may fall apart
Things of the evil one surround us
And many fall away
Fear of the future grips men's hearts
But I am sayin' don't you worry
Don't be afraid
All these things must happen before Jesus comes again

Count it all joy, my brother
For we are near the end
And with each passing moment
We're closer to Him
Count it all joy, my sister
Keep pressin' on
Keep lookin' on up for Jesus
You'll see Him split the sky

A fiery trial is burnin' 'round you
Do you think it strange
Why are you taken by surprise
It's because of His name that they abuse us
So when you suffer pain
Know it's His Spirit's in your life
Whoa, I'm sayin' don't you worry
Don't be afraid
All these things must happen before Jesus comes again

Count it all joy, my brother
For we are near the end
And with each passing moment
We're closer to Him
Count it all joy, my sister
Keep pressin' on
Keep lookin' on up for Jesus
You'll see Him split the sky

See a mental picture
It's the end of time
All the nations gathered
Shake their fist up toward a blackened sky
Across the far horizon
Streaks a pure and blinding light
It's mighty conquering Jesus
His glory floods the sky

Count it all joy, my brother
For we are near the end
And with each passing moment
We're closer to Him
Count it all joy, my sister
Keep pressin' on
Keep lookin' on up for Jesus
You'll see Him split the sky

Count it all joy
Keep lookin' up for Jesus and count it all joy
Count it all joy
So when there's trouble all around you
And life has got you down just count it all joy
Count it all joy
Keep lookin' up for Jesus, count it all joy
Count it all joy
You'll see Him split the sky, count it all joy
Count it all joy
