Forgiveness

Album: Into The Light (2012)
  • 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

    Forgiveness, forgiveness

    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
