    I Have Two Ears

    Gratefully

    1. I have two ears to hear the truth,

    Two eyes to see the good.

    I have two feet to carry me

    To places where they should.

    [Chorus]

    I’ll try to use them wisely

    In my work and play.

    I thank my Heav’nly Father

    For making me this way.

    2. I have two lips to speak kind words,

    Two hands to work for me.

    All these loving helpers

    Heav’nly Father gave to me.

    [Chorus]

    I’ll try to use them wisely

    In my work and play.

    I thank my Heav’nly Father

    For making me this way.
