I read about the peace of Christ
Oh, how I’ve longed for it to feel in my heart.
All I have to do is to forgive,
But I don’t seem to know where to start.
Forgive as you have been forgiven by the Lord
Get rid of anger and every form of malice.
I strive to let go and remove it all,
Yet there is a wound in my heart that has become callous.
Jesus has forgiven us, why then can’t I?
I want to shape my life after His own.
I pray and I try, but my sinful nature wins
Lord, help me, I can’t just do this thing alone.
I keep praying
I keep trying.
But what I want to do, I don’t do enough of
and what I don’t want to do, I do too much of.
I’m going to keep praying and trying no matter what
I’m determined to let go and relinquish blame
Someday I’ll say, and be truly sincere:
“I forgive it all in Jesus’ precious name.”
