I may not have a lot of fame
Nor a mansion on a hill.
I have no real fine gifts to give
There is nothing to reveal.

I do not have a lot of wealth.
But I have the things I need.
There are those who have most everything
Whose lives are full of greed.



I have a kind and loving heart
With gentleness doth reign.
There are those who have no heart at all
Who send out lots of pain.

I have a wonderful spirit
That will never grow jagged or old.
There are those who have no feeling at all
Their days are dark and cold.



I have a wonderful pair of legs
To help me get around.
There are those who have no legs at all
To lift them when they’re down.

I have a wonderful pair of arms
To give a hug or two.
There are those who have no arms at all
To feel the love I do.



I have a wonderful pair of hands
To let me work and play.
There are those who have no hands at all
To help them through the day.

I have a wonderful pair of ears
To listen to the rain.
There are those who cannot hear at all
The splash upon the pane.



I have a wonderful pair of eyes
They have beheld some beautiful sights.
There are those who cannot see at all
Their world is black as night.

I have a wonderful sense of smell
And enjoyed the aroma of flowers.
There are those who have no sense of smell
And miss life’s fragrant hours.



My life has been a rainbow
With only a bit of strife.
Today I counted my blessings
I have a wonderful life.
