Forgiveness, precious gift of God.
Forgiveness, promised in his word.
Jesus paid the price, became the sacrifice,
when he laid down his life for me on Calvary.
~
For so long I’d spurned God’s grace; hiding from his face.
But in his mercy he opened up his arms and drew me in.
When I was lost, undone, with nowhere else to run,
I found forgiveness and now have peace within.
~
Forgiveness, precious gift to me.
Forgiveness, God’s love pardoned me.
Jesus cleansed within, my heart so stained with sin,
when I reached out and took the gift he offered me.
~
For so long I’d spurned God’s grace; hiding from his face.
But in his mercy he opened up his arms and drew me in.
When I was lost, undone, with nowhere else to run,
I found forgiveness and now have peace within.
~
Forgiveness, precious gift to share.
Forgiveness, answer to my prayer.
Jesus gave to me, such joy, such victory,
when I learned to forgive as he forgiveth me.
~
For so long I’d spurned God’s grace; hiding from his face.
But in his mercy he opened up his arms and drew me in.
When I was lost, undone, with nowhere else to run,
I found forgiveness and now have peace within.
~
I found forgiveness and now have peace within.
