The pain and the memories
Of the injustice and lies too;
Your heart engraved with scars
With a blanket over you.
The days linger with no relief
And the lamp inside you fades;
There is no peace inside your soul
As this pattern marks your days.
It isn’t fair you often wonder
As to why it came your way;
This fiery test and heavy trial
That brings affliction to your day.
But when we refuse to forgive
We bind God’s healing touch,
And the need for deliverance
That our dear soul craves so much.
The epitome of forgiveness
Was when Christ the cross embraced;
To nail our transgressions
So eternal death we do not face.
Since we placed the thorny crown
And we nailed His feet and hands;
With our sinful words and actions
In ways too deep to understand.
But He opened not His mouth
As a humble lamb would do;
Instead asked our heavenly Father
To forgive both me and you.
He’s our ultimate example
Of forgiveness, peace and grace;
With an unconditional love
Extended to the human race.
