Forgive the Unforgiven…

Bitter words from troubled lips, icy stares from cold, dark eyes.

Hatred ‘neath a phony smile, but in your shoes I haven’t walked a mile.

Acts of violence fill the streets, trails of blood from broken hearts.

Anger seethes, brings on disease, causes aching, lonely hearts to freeze.

Forgive the unforgiven, return not their hate. 

Oh, love the unforgiven, their deeds seal their fate.

I must forgive others, as the Lord forgave me.

Cynics kill the spirit, like water on fire, flames fade.

Pride and power chain the pure but breaking free is the Spirit’s cure.

Lord, bring peace to those who fear. Bring love, warm our cold hearts.

Make the enemy a friend and grant forgiveness ever to the end.

Forgive the unforgiven, return not their hate. 

Oh, Love the unforgiven, their deeds seal their fate.

I must forgive others, as the Lord forgave me.               NFR
