Why be blind

If you had been living when Christ was on earth

And had met the Savior kind,

What would you have asked him to do for you,

Supposing you were stone blind?

A child considered and then replied,

I expect that, without a doubt,

I’d ask for a dog, with collar and chain,

To lead me daily about.

And how often thus, in faithless prayer,

We acknowledge with shamed surprise

We have only asked for a dog and chain,

When we might have had--opened eyes."
