♥ الله ♥ Forgive Me When I Whine...


Today, upon a bus
I saw a girl with golden hair
and wished I was 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, she smile
Oh God, forgive me when I whine
 
I have 2 legs, 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 whine
I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine

I stopped to buy 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
You see," he said, "I'm blind"
Oh God, forgive me when I whine
 
I have 2 eyes, 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 whine
I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine

I saw a child with eyes of blue
He stood and watched the others play
He did not 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 whine
I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine
