"It is good to give thanks to the LORD, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your loving kindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night." Psalm 92:1-2
"Today upon a bus, I saw a lovely maid with golden
hair; I envied her--she seemed so happy, and how, I
wished I were so fair; When suddenly she rose to
leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle; she had one
foot and wore a crutch, but as she passed, a smile.
Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two feet--the
world is mine.
"And when I stopped to buy some sweets, the lad who
served me had such charm; he seemed to radiate good
cheer, his manner was so kind and warm; I said, 'It's
nice to deal with you, such courtesy I seldom find';
he turned and said, 'Oh, thank you sir.' And then I
saw that he was blind. Oh, God, forgive me when I
whine, I have two eyes, and the world is mine.
"Then, when walking down the street, I saw a child
with eyes of blue; he stood and watched the others
play, it seemed he knew not what to do; I stopped a
moment, then I said, 'Why don't you join the others,
dear?' He looked ahead without a word, 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 sunsets glow / with ears to hear what I would know
/ I am blessed indeed / The world is mine / oh, God,
forgive me when I whine."
