The World is Mine

Today upon a bus I saw
A girl of golden hair
In my heart wished that I
Was just 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 - a smile

Oh God, forgive me when I whine
I have two legs, the world is mine

I stopped to buy some candy
The lad who sold it had such charm
I spoke to him, he seemed so glad
If I were late, it'd do no harm

And as I left, he said to me
''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 two 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
But 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've been blessed indeed, the world is mine
