Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Blessed means “holy and hallowed”
If you’re blessed you are favoured;
By the Lord, a privilege indeed,
We need to strive for it in word and deed!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

We’re blessed if we’re corrected by the Lord,
If we endure it, we’re doubly blessed says the Word!
Indeed, you and me are blessed in this world,
‘Cos all our sins are forgiven by the Lord!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Sermons aplenty we hear all our days,
If we follow and ‘do’, favour rests on our ways;
We are all indeed blessed says the Word,
If we really and truly fear the Lord!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

We’re blessed if we suffer for the Lord,
Let’s bear shame for the sake of His Word;
Then we will surely not get fame,
But Favour will be ours in His Name!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Today the world shouts: “Get, get and forget!”
But the Lord’s Word has this to say,
“Give, give and forgive: Not kindness forget.”
Give and we’ll be blessed throughout our way.

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Temptations fly thick ‘pon our heads,
And seize our thoughts as we lay on our beds;
But if we overcome and win,
We’ll be blessed and freed from sin!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Our brothers who went before us,
In the Lord; as we say, “missed the bus”;
Are blessed indeed as they are,
Always with the Lord and in His care!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Moved by his need if to my brother I give,
Blessed by the Lord I shall happily live;
The Lord’s Word if I study, apply and read,
Also shall I be blessed indeed.

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

The righteous, the Lord will surround,
With His Shield & blessings all around;
Our children and generations to come,
Shall also be blessed in our home!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

Giving to those who can’t give back,
Is specially a blessing – you’ll never lack!
Blessed we shall be if we watch and pray,
When the Lord as Judge comes down on that Day!

Blessed, blessed, blessed shall we be,
In all our life like a fruit-bearing tree!

The repeated chorus lends itself to song and I think you are singing the blessedness of the Lord if we obey His word. Thanks for sharing
