I thought they were my friend but they betrayed my trust Even though I am hurting to forgive I must Forgiveness will release me from the pain I feel It is only then that I know I will heal I know it will be awkward because they live so close But I must walk in the ways of Jesus our Host He is the one who showed us the way He forgave when He was betrayed I know if I love Him I too must forgive If with myself I wish to live I may need to hold His hand But I know He will understand I know He will take the pain I feel Because I know His love is real THANK YOU JESUS!
