Today, on a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair. And wished I were as fair. When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle; she had one leg and wore a crutch. But as she passed, a smile appeared ! Oh, God, forgive me when I whine; I have two legs. The world is mine !
I stopped to buy some candy. The boy who sold it had such charm. I talked with him. He seemed so glad. If I were late, it'd do no harm. And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you. You have been so kind. It's nice to talk with people like you". And I saw that he was blind. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine; I have two eyes. The world is mine !
Then, when walking down the street, I saw a child with blue eyes. He stood and watched the others play. He did not know what to do. I stopped for a moment, then I said, "Why don't you join the others, dear?" He kept on looking straight ahead, and then I knew he could not hear. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two ears. The world is mine !
With feet to take me where I'd go, with eyes to see the sunset's glow, and with ears to hear what I would know.....
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I'm blessed indeed. The world is mine !
When you're lonely, I wish you love.
When you're down, I wish you joy.
When things get complicated, I wish you faith.
When things look empty, I wish you hope.
In times of stress, still be at peace.
In a busy life, rest and release.
In times of failure, joy is found.
In persecution, strength has bounds.
In times of struggle, find a door.
In desperate times, your hope sustains;
In loneliness, His love remains.
There is sunshine, and there is rain.
There is laughter, and there is pain.
There is loss, and there is gain.
There is hope in Jesus name.
