I Can’t Understand

Blessings upon blessings;
Peace, joy, and comfort
You've given to me.

And I thank You.

Yet... hardship and struggles;
Pain, sorrow, regret
You've given to them.

And I just can't understand;
No I can't understand.

Why Lord? Why Lord,
Must they suffer while every good thing
Is poured out on me?

And Why Lord? Why Lord,
Won't You give them some peace,
Even if it means taking from me?

If they must struggle,
Please take away my joy.
If they must weap,
Please let me share in their tears.

If I get such happiness,
Please give them some, too.
If I am blessed with joy,
Please also shower them with blessings.

Saith the Lord,
"Rejoice with those who rejoice,
And mourn with those who mourn."
