God, Forgive Me When I Whine
Author UnknownToday, upon a bus,I saw a girl with golden hair.
I envied her, she seemed so gay,And I wished I was as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave,I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and used a crutch.But as she passed, she gave a smile.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 legs, the world is mine.
I stopped to buy some candy.The lad 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've been so kind.It's nice to talk with folks like you.
You see," he said, "I'm blind."
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 eyes, the world is mine.
Later while walking down the street,I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play,He seemed not to know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,"Why don't you join the others dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.And then I knew he couldn't hear.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 ears, the world is mine.
With feet to take me where I'd go.With eyes to see the sunset's glow.
With ears to hear what I'd know.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whineI've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.~
