Blessed Am I

No, I’ve never had to go hungry

Or sleep out in the cold

I’ve no relatives dying, at present, of AIDS

Or because they are old

I’ve never gone without clothing

A blanket or a bed

And I’ve never been without friendship

Or a shoulder for my head

 

A marriage of great turmoil

Broken bones and heartfelt pain

Seemed hard enough to bear

When I faced my hardest rain

I felt I’d been deceived

So to God I heavily wept

Over all my trials and suffering

And my monetary debts

 

If only I had seen how truly

Blessed I have been

For there are so many greater sufferings

That I must take to him

He’s opened up my eyes to see

The poor and hungry dying

It’s now for them I feel

And for them I do my crying

 

Some know him, some do not

But for all of them I pray

That somehow he will use me

To brighten up their days

There is AIDS there is HUNGER

There are CHILDREN WITHOUT HOMES

There are ADDICTS there are PRISONS

And STREETS where the LONELY roam

 

So when you cannot pay your bills

And your lover lets you down

When you feel you can go no further

Just take a look around

Stop judging others long enough

To truly LOVE and CARE

For by the grace of God, it’s them

Instead of you that’s there

 

Then thank your Heavenly Father

Get on your knees and pray

That he will use you too

To help another find the way!
