I Can’t Complain

I’ve had some good times, and I’ve had hills to climb. I’ve had some bad times, and then a wearied mind. But when I look about, and think these things all out, All of the good times outweigh the bad times, I can’t complain.

Some days the clouds hang low, I would love to see them go. I ask God this question: “Oh Lord, why is there so much pain?” But He knows what’s best for me, although I cannot see. All of the good things outweigh the bad things. I can’t complain.

My God is good to me. Oh yes, He’s good to me. More than this world could be, He’s so good to me. His Spirit came to me and gave me victory. My God is good to me. I can’t complain.
