Forgive Me, Lord
— By Dorothy Womack

Forgive me, Lord, when I overlook —
The beauty of a sunset
The beauty in a human soul
The beauty all around me.

Forgive me, Lord, when I don’t appreciate —
The goodness which You show me
The goodness found in others
The goodness of Your world itself.

Forgive me, Lord, when I ignore —
The signals that You send me
The signs and wonders that You show me
The life in Christ I have.

Forgive me, Lord, when I depend —
Upon myself instead of You
Upon others instead of Christ
Upon opinions instead of Spirit.

Forgive me, Lord, when I hide in fear —
From those You choose to love me
From those You send to help me
From those who come in Your Name.

Let me recognize in everything —
Your Hand at work through human hands
Your Love at work through human hearts
Your Will at work through human deeds.

Lord, as I go forward in the life You have for me
Let me always remember that FORGIVENESS is the key
To unlock all the prison doors, and set the captives free
And help me to do likewise – As You have forgiven me.
