You Must Forgive

In order to be forgiven

You Must Forgive


Hey, I thought it was the other way around
I'll forgive you when you say you are sorry
I can't forgive you just to forgive you
What about my stand? My anger
My pride

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

Are thieves forgiven?
What about someone who has maimed or killed someone?
Can a mother who has lost a child to violence forgive?
Are the 100,000 state prisoners forgiven?

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

What about all of the wars
Those who were killed by the enemy
Did someone forgive Hitler for all of his atrocities?

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

Will my student loans be forgiven?
What about my overcharged VISA
Can I get my car for free?

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

What about that cheating spouse
A lover that won't let you go yet abuses you
That child you abandoned a long time ago
The in-law who selfishly is concerned with his own needs
Your sister who hurt you so much

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

Jesus Christ forgave those who crucified him
Why can't I forgive?
I'm I the one that needs to heal?
Can if find peace of mind by forgiving?

You must forgive in order to be forgiven

Please forgive me
I need to be forgiven
I need to be forgiven
