Have Forgiveness

Jesus was the first to show mankind,

That those who turn the cheek and believe,

Are blessed by God with the power of healing

What a loving Creator we have!

Our Creator sees what we are unaware of

He forgives and shows us mercy every day

Yet He does not forgive the unforgiving people

So follow after Him and forgive with strength

Pay close attention to yourself

Resentment has been the captor of many

Revenge and penalty a common pit

Forgiveness is from the heart

It speaks not a word against anyone

It seeks out the best of memories

Even when the pains are great

God desires that you forgive

Even when you're too weak to keep forgiving

God wants you to pray for strength

Yes, it is your constancy in forgiveness

Which brings Our Father to approval

Indeed, Our God loves to forgive those who forgive

He will not hold those forgiven to account
