1 When you count the ones who love the Lord,
Count me, count me;
When you count up those who trust His Word,
Count me, count me.

Chorus:
Count me with the children of the heav’nly King;
Count me with the servants who would service bring;
Count me with the ransomed who His praises sing;
Count me, count me.

2 When you count up those who’re saved by grace,
Count me, count me;
Who have found in Christ a hiding place,
Count me, count me. [Chorus]

3 When you count up those who do the right,
Count me, count me;
Who are walking in the Gospel light,
Count me, count me. [Chorus]

4 When you count up those who forward press,
Count me, count me;
Who shall gain the crown of righteousness,
Count me, count me. [Chorus]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
