The Giver of Mercy

I find I have much unforgiveness
For things others have done in past times 
My mind is wrapped up with vengeance 
My heart has left love far behind

I can't seem to find strength to get over
The hurts and the pains of the past
Now bitterness knocks at my hearts door
And I'm not sure how long it will last

Then I think of the giver or mercy
The Savior who died on the cross 
If He could forgive me if my sin
Who am I to refuse the same thought?

Who am I to refrain from forgiving?
Who am I to hold onto a grudge?
Who am I to refuse to pass on
This gift I've received from my judge?

So I set out to ask true forgiveness
For all the past thoughts in my mind
One by one I approach those who hurt me
Even though they don't know what they've done

I become the giver of mercy
I become the reliever of sin
I become what the Father has longed for
To be like His only Son

Jesus came to this earth to forgive us
To wipe away all our offense
All He asks us for us to pass on
The great gift if mercy immense

Please don't hold onto hurts any longer
Be a giver of mercy to all
This is truly the will if the Father
This is how you can answer His call
