Forgiveness

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Toby talking about the two-sided element of forgiveness. "There are two sides to forgiveness. There's asking for it and there's offering it," explained Toby. "But before you can be forgiven, you have to confess. In a lot of ways, this song is a confession. We're all going to cross that line one time or another, but the important thing is recognizing it and turning around."
  • Toby is joined on this song by the Christian rapper Lecrae, whose Rebel set was the first ever Hip-Hop album to make the #1 position on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart.
