Forgive Them

Has someone said some words
That are absurd and caused deep hurt
They have sent you reeling
Hurt your feelings
Now you’re dealing with these thoughts
They have wrought
In your heart
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

Has someone done something
That starts to ring and leaves a sting
To your pride
Down deep inside
You try to hide and want payback
Except you lack
A plan of attack
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

Have people whipped you hard
Beaten with a rod for who you are
Put thorns on your head
Falsely accused and led
To death
Upon a cross crucified
Left to die
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

We do not have
A life that is so bad
Yet we complain
Of the pain
That others cause us
And we discuss
Those things that sting
With those who can do nothing
To fix the pain
And we disdain
From what God said
In His word
Forgive them, for they know not what they do

The next time you feel hurt
Become the person God intended
Bring an end to any strife
Give out life
As you forgive them
For they know not what they do
