“I’ve had bad days and I’ve had hills to climb. I’ve had sad days and then a weary mile. Yet when I look about and think these things all out all of the good things outweigh the bad ones. I can’t complain.
God is so good to me. He is so good to me. More than this world could be. He’s so good to me. His spirit came to me and gave me victory. God is so good to me, I can’t complain.
Sometimes the clouds hang low. I’d like to see them go. I ask the question. Why so much pain But He knows what’s best for me, although I cannot see, so I just say thank you, Lord. I can’t complain.”
I’ve heard this beautiful song for years, but until a couple of days ago had never heard that Don Johnson was the writer of the song. I don’t know him, but he seems to be a precious man, and has a smooth comforting voice. On the video he tells of writing the song in 1975, and that I Can’t Complain was sung at the funeral of Ray Charles.
Don’t have any complaints, do we? This or that hurtful thing will surely cast itself at us, and there are times we walk about bruised and wounded. But in the wide scope of things–when we consider God, His great love, His everlasting mercy, His bountiful generosity–we have no complaints.
You will be blessed by this song.
