There Are So Many Blessings In My Life


THERE ARE SO MANY BLESSINGS IN MY LIFE

There are so many blessings in my life
Why do I complain so?
Ingratitude is a sin-
What is the point of focusing always
On the negative side?
A human being is a struggle always-
To see the Light is more difficult for some
Still there are so many blessings,
And here I am complaining about complaining-
Oh the Light and the Beauty and the Goodness
And also all the evils that might come and have not-
There are so many blessings in my life
Thank God, Shabbat will soon come.

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
