THE BLIND BOY
 
div
 

I am but a poor blind boy
Still my heart is full of joy
Though I never saw the light
Or the flowers they call so bright
I can hear the sweet bird sing
And the wild bee on the wing
Bird and bee and summer wind
Sing to me because I'm blind.

Chorus: They love me, yes they love me
And to me they are so kind
They love me, yes they love me.
Because I am blind.


With my fingers I can trace
Every line on Mother's face
Oft her smile upon me beams
I can see it in my dreams
Father takes me on his knee
Brothers Oh so kind to me
Sister's arms around me twinned
Kisses me because I'm blind.

Chorus:

This morning as in bed I lay
Mother softly came to pray
Said for me such pretty prayers
And I felt her holy tears
Falling gently down on me
And she kissed me, so you see
Every one to me is kind
And they love me for I'm blind.

Chorus:
