Forgiveness is a daily art:
A practice healing wounded hearts:
The promise Jesus sees our pain
And knows we’re tempted to complain:
The promise that God understands:
The promise that He holds our hands:
Assurance that He holds our hearts
When woundings pierce and sorrow smarts.
Forgiveness breaks relations’ chains
When only bitterness remains;
Reminds us of Christ’s sacrifice;
Refreshes when life isn’t nice;
Recalls to us the Savior’s grace;
Enables us to see His face.
Remember when life’s woundings smart
Forgiveness is a daily art.
