Sometime the Answer's "No!"

We often ask for selfish things
that we don't really need,
But God has never promised
He would satisfy our greed.

We can't all be rich or famous
and live in luxury,
Someone must wash the dishes
and plant the apple tree.

Everybody loves the winner
who captures first place,
But no one can remember
the others in the race.

Sometimes the things we pray for
were never meant to be,
And because we don't receive them,
we doubt His love, you see.

God hears every prayer we utter
wherever we may go,
And if He does not answer
it could mean the answer's "No!"
