Forgive Them - Poem by Jacob Courtney

Forgive Them

Dear Father,
They know not what they do. They
Forget their place they raise their arms
In defiance of You, in defiance of Your
Will, in defiance of your Son. They pass
Unholy laws make a mockery of Your
Creation a mockery of Your Holy Word.
I beg of you Father forgive them of
Their sin forgive them of their ignorance
Just as you forgave me. Was I not a
Lost soul a sinner who darkened your
Light am I not a sinner still when I fall
Short when I turn from your will. Father
Grant them your love and mercy let your
Grace reign over them Father. Can you
Hear me Father? Yes Lord I know that you
Can not let sin go unpunished I know what
The final payment is but Father not all are
Fallen from grace. Father some are innocent
Spare them the pain of what you have in
Store for this sinful nation. Yes Lord I trust
In your master plan yes Father I shall
Follow your will forgive this ignorant creation
Of yours for who am I to question you who
Am I to defy you. I submit to you Lord for
You are the Holy Father who gave us
Life you should be the one to decide how
It ends. Praise you Father and thank you
For saving this Lost Soul.
