Let Forgiveness Heal - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

We’ll seek forgiveness love and grace
We’ll seek through Christ to live
Yet fail to see His wondrous face
Because we won’t forgive

Through selfish ways through foolish pride
Through shallowness of soul
Bitterness hinders love inside
To make our spirit whole

Resentment has no place above
Hatred’s ordained to die
Forgiveness though God’s fruit of love
Will pave The Way on high

Blessing our soul righting our wrong
Mending our broken heart
Forgiveness sings its healing song
Heralding life’s new start

For foolish walls to crumble down
Let wisdom now explain
Forgiveness needs to wear a crown
And love begin to reign

Be merciful to friend and foe
Forgive the evil done
Believe the seed today we sow
Will grow till victory’s won

Be wise to Heaven’s true advice
Heed all Christ had to say
In Matthew six He warns us twice
To walk forgiveness’ way

Forget the hurtful things you’ve heard
Let malice speak in vain
Believe in God, His faithful word
So love can heal the pain
