299 ~ Forgive Our Sins As We Forgive



1

"Forgive our sins as we forgive,"
You taught us, Lord, to pray;
But You alone can grant us grace
To live the words we say.


2

How can Your pardon reach and bless
The unforgiving heart
That broods on wrongs and will not let
Old bitterness depart?


3

In blazing light Your cross reveals
The truth we dimly knew:
How trifling others' debts to us;
How great our debt to You!


4

Lord, cleanse the depths within our souls
And bid resentment cease;
Then, by Your mercy reconciled,
Our lives will spread Your peace.
