Count Your Blessings
Nas & Damian Marley Lyrics


And I've got studios to voice in
And I've got news for rejoicing
Now a new sun is rising
I count my blessings
That I'm safe when I'm resting
Furniture in my nesting
But by force I'm suggesting
Ya count your blessings

I've got love and assurance
I've got new health insurance
And I've got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We're still here together after
Better count your blessings

'Cause yo this year, can't wait 'til it gets here
7-21-09 my first son will shine
And it's amazing I'm about to be raisin'
Another main man and like his dad they'll praise him
And some will hate him, just cause we buildin' a nation
Like Bob did with Damian
The world will embrace him, girls'll chase him
Foresee, they will not break him
And when I'm not around, you look for God and thank him

And I've got somewhere to dress for
And I've got no need to stress for
And so I'll always put my best forth
And count my blessings

And they'll be no need for tissues
'Cause there will be no further issues
If you got someone who miss you
Man, count your blessings

I've got love and assurance
And I've got new health insurance
And I've got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We're still here together after
Better count your blessings

You wishin' you were sittin' in the top position
Picture perfect, nothing less 'cause you deserve it
Without the Hermes, you'd have a hurtin'
You knew that you was destined for greatness, for certain
You see the over-zealous, they be thirstin', caught up in emotion
You keepin' your composure like Gershwin
Songs by Earth Wind keep you in the zone, writing verses
So when your pocket's light, know that you have a heavy purpose

We've got preschool and daycare
We've got pension and welfare
And though not all will play the game fair
Still I count my blessings

I've joy in abundance
I've got life full of substance
I've got meetings and functions
So I count my blessings

I've got something to live for
I've got surplus to give more
And we're all welcome through His door
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We're still here together after
So I count my blessings

I think you lookin' too hard for it
With the double R under your garage door
Appreciate the things you work hard for
Hey, count your blessings
Count your blessings
So don't be mad if you ain't fly y'all
You got the means to reach the level I'm on
You should know there's only one Nas y'all
But count your blessings, count your blessings

And I've got studios to voice in
And I've got news for rejoicing
Now a new sun is rising
I count my blessings
That I'm safe when I'm resting
Furniture in my nesting
Not by force I'm suggesting
Ya count your blessings

I've got love and assurance
I've got new health insurance
And I've got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We're still here together after
Better count your blessings

probably the most under appreciated album in hip hop history, so much love to both nas and damien

Jitt Redd

This is my favorite album of all time

Moon Mix

Not a big audience for positivity and love in that venue

Marc Cooks

Nope I rated 100/100 infact tupac is the goat but these two together join tupac in that position there's no 2nd between the 3. Must be the message.

AR.ZPoint

John fr yo the perfect blend of two genres meanwhile other rappers try and mix with rock and fail ๐Ÿ˜’
