SING A SONG

If you think you have troubles and woe's,
Check with the man upstairs and he give you a show.

Count your blessing's one at a time,
Making life's mountains a little easier to climb.

So say a little prayer and by yourself do all you can,
Leave the rest to God to work his wondrous plan.

[Hata Bildir]
