"The World Is Mine" - GraceAndWorks

Today upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman

and wished I were so beautiful.

When suddenly she rose to leave,

I saw her hobble down the aisle.

She had one leg and used a crutch.

But as she passed, 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 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 two eyes; the world is mine.


Later while walking down the street,

I saw a child I knew.

He stood and watched the others play,

but he didn’t know what to do.

I stopped a moment and then I said,

“Why don’t you join them my dear?”

He looked ahead without a word.

I forgot, 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.


God blesses us abundantly. I’m thankful for my family, my health, and my home. Mostly I’m thankful for God, who sent His only Son to die on a cruel cross that I might have forgiveness of sins. And, by simply obeying His commands, have a promise of a home in heaven.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING all. Have a wonderful holiday!!
