Full Text

1 Help us forgive, forgiving Lord
the wrong that others do,
and, when our hearts are pierced by pain,
to bring the hurt to you.

2 For on the cross you bore for us
the curse, the scorn, the hate
and gave your life to lift from us
sin's cruel and crushing weight.

3 Let grace unlock each prisoned heart,
uncoil each fisted hand
until from hate our hearts are freed,
our hands in love extend.

4 And then, the broken circle closed,
the broken friendships healed,
Lord, hold us fast within the bonds
by your forgiveness sealed.
