I came into the world, just three months too soon.
Lost my eyesight, can't tell midnight from noon!

I was so small, my body not developed to full size;
My kidneys, bladder, and also blind in both eyes.

I lived for years with my family and went to school.
I had lots of problems, so I went to the blind school.

There I learned I had abundance of talent at hand.
Then for years, I wasted it on Satan.  I was his man.

For thirty years, they said, I was a handicapped man.
I accepted my problems and worried with them as a man.

I know I caused much anguish for my family and mankind.
I struggled to cope, being handicapped to find.

But many other thoughts, ideas, and words came to mind.
Then I met a man, so gentle and loving so.

He said, "You need to meet this friend, Jesus, to know!"
Well, He told me of Him, and my heart nearly burst.

He said, "Accept Jesus, and in Him only trust!"
He said, I wouldn't be handicapped then as a man.

Jesus, would then make me over again, His man!
This I did and believe me, He brought joy to my soul and more.

Now, I Praise Him and thank Him for evening the score!
