Why is forgiveness so hard to give? When without forgiveness we could not live. I guess for us, to set pride aside Is as hard as swimming against the tide But without forgiveness, the Devil wins For that is one step headed toward sin Even if the sin against us was wrong OUR sins, that are forgiven, go on and on. We are taught, two wrongs don’t make a right So against our own anger, we must fight Seek God, talk to Him, praise Him for it all And then, this anger, from you, He will withdraw. For to think hate, and feel hate, we are just as bad, And with these sins, we really make God sad Think of those who you have hurt or have done wrong, Remember their forgiveness and sing a new song For to have God’s love and His forgiveness, That alone should bring us bliss When you feel the pain of the sin Think of the cross, and the pain Jesus was in Remember the debt that was paid for you And to your fellow man, offer forgiveness too.
