When I asked god for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face
When I asked god for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve
When I asked god for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people
When I asked god for wealth
He showed me how to work hard
When I asked god for favors
He showed me opportunities to work hard
When I asked god for peace
He showed me how to help others
God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed
