Text:

1.
Do not wish for another’s life
For God himself ordains
The boundaries of our mortal strife
And holds fast to the reigns.

2.
Do not wish for another’s lot
It may hold hidden grief
So do not mourn when you have not
But press on in belief.

3.
Do not wish for another’s state
For you need yours to grow
God works His way not out of hate
But love more than we know.
