Forgiveness Is a Gift + Forgiveness Narration

Forgiveness is an important part of healing. Often we try to force ourselves to forgive, when really, what we need to do is ask the Lord for His help, then stand back and let Him.

Lyrics
Forgiveness Is a Gift
"Forgive them, Father," He prayed while hanging on the tree.
Can't I forgive as He's forgiven me?
Shouldn't I be able to forgive and just forget?
So I buried my anger deep, and yet . . .
The rage still rose unbidden from inside
Engulfing all my soul in a bitter, hateful tide.
How could I say it was okay
When I still felt the pain each day?
Oh, God, this thing You ask of me,
I cannot do, I cannot be.
But then my mind began to clear.
I thought I felt the Savior near.
"First you must forgive thyself,
Then rest I'll give to you myself,
And when your pain and hurt have ceased,
I'll send you peace."

Forgiveness is was a gift from God
As down the healing path I trod.
Empowering my heart to just let go.
It brought the sweetest peace I know.

"You cannot choose the time or place.
You cannot rush this gift of grace.
Forgiving words will not be real
Until the wounds begin to heal.
So, come to me. Be not ashamed.
I never blamed you for your pain.
Your bitterness, I'll help you bear.
The time will come, this gift I'll share.
And when your pain and hurt have ceased,
I'll send you peace."

Forgiveness was a gift from God
As down the healing path I trod,
Empowering my heart to just let go.
It brought the sweetest peace I know.
