Why must I weep when others sing?
To test the deeps of suffering.
Why must I work while others rest?
To spend my strength at God’s request.
Why must I lose while others gain?
To understand defeat’s sharp pain.
Why must this lot of life be mine
When that which fairer seems is thine?
Because God knows what plans for me will blossom in eternity.
