    The World Is Mine
    Oh God, Forgive Me When I Whine

    Today, upon a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair.
    I envied her, she seemed so gay, and wished I was as fair.
    When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobbled down the aisle.
    She had one leg and wore a crutch.
    And as she passed… 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 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……..
