Lord forgive me when I complain

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 hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch. But as she passed, a smile.

Oh, God, forgive me when I complain.
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 complain.
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 complain.
I’ve been blessed indeed, the world is mine.

  1. Matindi ito,marami pa naman akong nagawang kasalanan.
    Pero sa maniwala ka o hindi,ng naguumpisa pa lamang mahubog ang isipan ng panganay ko na babae,about 2 years ols siya noon at nagsimbang gabi kami nakabalot sila ng husto dahil malamig.Pag-uwi namin sabi niya sa akin.Tagalugin ko na lang ang english niya sa akin.”Daddy,Bakit hindi mo iniwanan ang jacket mo kay Jesus,giniginaw siya,kawawa naman,nakapako pa sa krus may roon ka pa namang mga jacket sa bahay”.

    Sinabi ko sa pediatrician niya ang sinabi ng anak ko.Sabi ng doctor sa akin.”Kita mo dalawang taon pa lang iyang anak mo ay maawain na at naisip niya iyun” Ayun sa sobrang maawain pati tuloy ako ay napeperhuwesyo dahil kapag susunduin ko siya ay maraming kaibigan ang nakikisakay,papakain ko ng hamburger at ihahatid sa kanilang bahay.Palaban,pati ang mga WWII veteran ay sumasali siya sa rally nila kasama ang kanyang mga sororities.

  11. this is what i always tell my friends when they are down. i tell them na hindi sila ang pinakamay mabigat na problem sa buong mundo. meron at meron pa ring kakain ng mga dahong tuyo kahit na dahon na lang ang kinakain mo sa itaas ng puno.

  12. tnx toby for passing…

    yeah tama sir gmac, i think that was written on the purpose driven life book. just think that we/you are not the only one who has a problem or perhaps a big problem.

    pero sabi nga di ba? our God is bigger than our problems.

  13. yeah u r right our GOD is bigger than our problems not problems bigger than GOD… Life is along with problems and hardship if it wasnt then it wouldnt be LIFE of world… we live with this hardships to make us grow bigger and bigger and then be the one we should be….some1 successes and some1 loses…(Life is this) where r u from yhen?
