Forgiveness

Forgiveness gives love a road to travel upon
Instead of climbing through deserts and hills
It forges a path directly to the heart
Changing what we’d otherwise will

We’ve the chance to experience love firsthand
To live in something we’ve yearned for
Maybe years, maybe even a lifespan
It draws open new doors

Chorus
Forgiveness gives love a road to travel upon
Instead of climbing through deserts and hills
It forges a path directly to the heart
Changing what we’d otherwise will

When this forgiveness is left just at words
Its power is lost in sounds and syllables
Forgotten and replaced by anger
Intertwined with action its power’s ample

Chorus

Humility brings the opportunity for acceptance
Such a wonderful gift is easily thrown away
When it is met by pride at the door
Such a display won’t make a way

Chorus

Forgiveness will bring vibrant life
What has passed away has changed
Absolved from due payments
My heart is left for an open range

Chorus

Who can renounce anger or resentment
Towards the one who has pained them most
Yet this is what this means
What has been pain will be healing most

Chorus

Forgiveness gives people the chance to change
Their ways aren’t set in stone
Lostness only brings a way to be found
Vagabonds need a chance for a home

Forgiveness gives love a road to travel upon
Instead of climbing through deserts and hills
It forges a path directly to the heart
Changing what we’d otherwise will
