Sometimes I wonder when things go so wrong
Has God forsaken me and left me alone?
And then I remember through trials of distress
He's always with me, I'm most richtly blessed.
I asked for strenght that I might achieve
I was given weakness that I might learn humbly to obey
I asked for health that I might do great things
I was given informality that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy
I was given poverty that I might be wise
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men
I was made weak that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life
I was given life that I might enjoy all things
I got nothing that I asked for but everything that I hoped for
And almost despite myself I among men am most richtly blessed.
And then I remember through trials and distress
He's always with me I'm most richtly blessed...
