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 smiled.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine.

I have two 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 have blessed indeed, 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. You see,”

he said, “I `m blind”

Oh God, forgive me when I whine.

I have two 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 have 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 two 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 have blessed indeed, the world is mine
