• Matthew West - Forgiveness
    From the album Into The Light

    It's the hardest thing to give away
    And the last thing on your mind today
    It always goes to those that don't deserve

    It's the opposite of how you feel
    When the pain they caused is just too real
    It takes everything you have just to say the word...

    Forgiveness
    Forgiveness

    It flies in the face of all your pride
    It moves away the mad inside
    It's always anger's own worst enemy
    Even when the jury and the judge
    Say you gotta right to hold a grudge
    It's the whisper in your ear saying 'Set It Free'

    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness

    Show me how to love the unlovable
    Show me how to reach the unreachable
    Help me now to do the impossible

    Forgiveness, Forgiveness

    Help me now to do the impossible
    Forgiveness

    It'll clear the bitterness away
    It can even set a prisoner free
    There is no end to what it's power can do
    So, let it go and be amazed
    By what you see through eyes of grace
    The prisoner that it really frees is you

    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness

    Show me how to love the unlovable
    Show me how to reach the unreachable
    Help me now to do the impossible
    Forgiveness

    I want to finally set it free
    So show me how to see what Your mercy sees
    Help me now to give what You gave to me
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
