It’s the hardest thing to give away And the last thing on your mind today It always goes to those who don’t deserve It’s the opposite of how you feel When they pain they caused is just too real Takes everything you have to say the word
It flies in the face of all your pride It moves away the mad inside It’s always anger’s own worst enemy Even when the jury and the judge Say you’ve got a right to hold a grudge It’s the whisper in your ear saying set it free
Forgiveness, forgiveness Forgiveness, forgiveness Show me how to love the unlovable Show me how to reach the unreachable Help me now to do the impossible Forgiveness, forgiveness Help me now to do the impossible Forgiveness
It’ll clear the bitterness away It can even set a prisoner free There is no end to what its power can do So let it go and be amazed by what you see through eyes of grace The prisoner that it really frees is you
Forgiveness, forgiveness Forgiveness, forgiveness Show me how to love the unlovable Show me how to reach the unreachable Help me now to do the impossible Forgiveness
I want finally set it free Show me how to see what your mercy sees Help me now to give what You gave to me Forgiveness, forgiveness Forgiveness, forgiveness
