Lord, Help Us Forgive - Poem by Dennisa Davidson

Oh Lord, in this one life that we live
Help us to love and to forgive

When words so cruel and unkindly spoken
Are tossed at our hearts making them broken
Anger and rage rise out of the ashes
Words that won’t erase our tongue quickly unlashes

Oh Lord, help us to seek not with vengeance to wound
By bitterness our own soul only gets doomed

Oh Lord, in this one life that we live
Help us to love and to forgive

When things so unfair are slated our share
When un-thoughtful hurts are doled with no care
Stubborn ugly Pride raises its head
To duty and goodness makes our soul dead

Oh Lord, help us to know wounds are not meant to be grown
These weeds of the heart are meant to be thrown

Oh Lord, in this one life that we live
Help us to love and to forgive

When things we’ve done in an unwise moment have broken
Our fair reputation that was our only good token
Remorse and regrets rise to en-shackle
Feelings a human heart by itself can’t tackle

Oh Lord, help us to not be engulfed by our own sorrow
By forgiving ourselves walk into a better tomorrow

Oh Lord, You have shown us to forgive friend and foe
You have forgiven us, so we don’t have to drown in our woe
So Lord, in this one life that we live
Help us to love like You and to like You forgive.
