  • Well the past is playing with my head
    And failure knocks me down again
    I'm reminded of the wrong
    That I have said and done
    And that devil just wont let me forget

    [Chorus]
    In this life
    I know what I've been
    But here in your arms
    I know what I am
    I'm forgiven
    I'm forgiven
    And I don't have to carry
    The weight of who I've been
    'Cause I'm forgiven

    My mistakes are running through my mind
    And I'll relive my days, in the middle of the night
    When I wrestle with my pain, struggle with my pride
    Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

    [Chorus]

    When I don't fit in and I don't feel like I belong anywhere
    When I don't measure up to much in this life
    Oh, I'm a treasure in the arms of Christ 'cause
    'Cause I'm forgiven
    I'm forgiven
    And I don't have to carry
    The weight of who I've been
    'Cause I'm forgiven. Writer/s: JOHN P. KEE
