Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have someone to forgive. – C.S.Lewis
Forgiveness is mercy.
Such pardon and kindness I cannot fathom.
Forgiveness is unfailing love.
Such patience and understanding I cannot comprehend.
Forgiveness is overwhelming compassion.
Such sympathy and warmth I cannot reciprocate.
Forgiveness is the blotting out of transgressions.
Such freedom and good will I do not deserve.
Forgiveness is the washing away of my iniquities.
Such purity and newness I cannot maintain.
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
Based on (Psalm 51:13,15)
“I think that if God forgives us we must forgive ourselves. Otherwise, it is almost like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him.” – C. S. Lewis
