Forget and Forgive

16 Feb 2017
11:56 AM

Sitting here day by day
Time slips silently away

Thinking of what should have been
Wishing for what could have been

Wasting thought and emotion
On sins that God cast into the ocean

He forgets when He forgives
Yet we hold on and refuse to live

Sin can be fun for a season
As God warned us with reason

For man will hold on with an iron grip
Rather than abandon a sinking ship

Our foolish wisdom and selfish guilt
Can not fathom the grace that God built

He sent His Son the Holy one to walk and die with us
The sacrifice perfect and sinless to trust

Yet we feel the need to wallow 
In self punishment so hollow

Let go of what God has forgiven
Let the blood of Christ bring his peace from heaven
