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 has one leg and wore a crutch

But as she passed she smiled
Oh God, forgive me when i whine
I have two legs 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 am blind”
Oh God, forgive me when i whine
I have two eyes 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 could’t hear
Oh God, forgive me when i whine
I have two ears the world is mine

With feet to take me where i go
With eyes to see the sunset’s glow

With ears to hear what i know
Oh God, forgive me when i whine
I’ve been blessed indeed the word is mine
