ma forgiveness


I have sinned before you, my guilt has kept me down; you offer me forgiveness, your love knows no bounds.

If I should say I do not sin that would be an utter lie; I cannot save myself at all, no matter how I try.

You offer me forgiveness, to cleanse me from within, your precious blood was shed for me, to free me from my sin.

So I come before you; repented from my ways. I confess that I’m a sinner who only YOU can save.

You died but then you rose to life; you are my ONLY WAY; I’m saved and I am justified for what you did that day.

Forgiven from this sin in me; set free from all the shame, you said that now I am your friend and have called me by my name.

I heard your voice and came to life, once dead and without hope, but now I have a future; your love won’t let me go.

My hope in a tomorrow with you always by my side, but I needed YOUR forgiveness LORD and not my foolish pride.
