Lord Forgive Them

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving me so much and choosing to sacrifice your life, endure the painful cross so I can have new life, freedom, and healing and stand before you without shame. So many of us think Jesus was murdered. Jesus deliberately yielded Himself to death in obedience to His Father. Hebrews 10: 19-20 speaks of the curtain symbolizing Christ's torn flesh on the cross. Because of the His broken body on the cross, allowing the curtain to be torn, the barrier between man and God is taken away. I’m so grateful we can now enter the very presence of God and experience complete oneness with Him!

Thank you for forgiving all of God’s beloved children, taking our place, bearing our sins. Isaiah 53:3 “The punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds, we are healed.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 "God made Him who had no sin to be a sin offering for us so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God".

What an awesome gift that Jesus gave us! I thank you Lord Jesus for saving me and setting me free! I pray to live my life to glorify You.

This song “Lord Forgive Them” I wrote at the piano after reading Isaiah 53 and Hebrews 10:19-20. It is very close to my heart.

Verse 1

My God my God, why have you forsaken me?

I know it’s time that I must die.

For all your children I wear their shame I bear their pain

that they might gain your love and your life.

I know that there’s a reason for this darkness.

I know there’s a reason for this day.


Lord forgive them, for they know not what they do

Their hearts are torn in two They’re living a lie. Your forgiveness can heal their hearts within and free them from their sin

that they might have your life. Oh I pray they have your life.

Verse 2

They laugh at me they say that I’m not king of kings

I feel alone and so afraid.

They stare at me while they piece my hands and feet yet do not see the love in my eyes.

My love is strong enough that I would die for them.

This love could love no other way.


With love the veil has been torn in two.

With love I cry and commit my spirit to you Lord


Lord forgive them, for they know not what they do.

Their hearts are torn in two They’re living a lie. Your forgiveness can heal their hearts within and free them from their sin

that they might have your life. Oh I pray they have your life.


I pray they have your life

I pray they have your Life!

My Intercessor’s love

After reading these veses from my bible study in John this song “My Intercessor” came to mind to play and worship.

There are so many verses that speak of our Lord Jesus Christ who is our Intessessor who know all our weaknesses and loves us unconditionally.

Here are the bible passages that touched my heart today.

Hebrews 4: 15-16 “We have a high preist, Jesus, who is able to empathize with our weaknessses for he has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet he did not sin. How wonderful that we can approach God’s throne of grace with confidence so we may receive mercy and find grace in time of need.

I pray if you are feeling afraid, pressured in your life, feel hopeless, that you draw near to God, pour out your concernes to him and allow him to love and help you.

He loves you so much for you are his precius child, his treasured possession! You can read this promise here - Dueterronmy 7:6

I am so grateful my Heavenly Father allowed Jesus to come to earth for me to die in my place to take away my sin to give me a new chance, a restored life now and forevermore. Now with with Jesus in my heart I have joy, peace, assurance, and hope!

I pray as you listen to this song “My Intercessor” you apprecaite the love and sacrrifice our Lord Jesus has given for us. He longs to meet our needs and loves us so much! John 17:11 is another special promise. “We are protected by the evil one safe by the name of Jesus, sanctified by the word. And His word is truth. - (our true, fulfulling, lasting food!)

God bless you. I hope you enjoy listening to this song My Inteccessor | Listen (MP3)

My Intercessor

By Michele Wagner & Dwight Lilies

Verse 1

He sees the heart within me
That no one else can see
He hears the prayers I sometimes find no words for
He knows my inner weakness my doubting and my fears When other loves are distant, He is near.
My Intercessor, He loves me as I am
My Intercessor, He’ll always be my friend
No matter what I’ve done or what I’ve not become My Intercessor, He loves me as I am
Loves me as I am
Verse 2
Oh He comforts me completely like no one else can do He takes my every need before the Father
I pour my tears before Him. They’re treasures in His hands He holds my heart and truly understands.
Oh His merciful forgiveness brings me to my knees His freedom and His strength lift up and carry me.
My Intercessor, He loves me as I am. Jesus my Savior He loves me as I am oh He loves me as I am.
Oh He loves me as I am.

Precious memories of Jonathan David Brown

I recently received some very sad news. I learned that my special friend, and gifted engineer and producer, singer, songwriter Jonathon David Brown had passed away. I met Jonathon shortly after I moved to Nashville in the 80’s where I was a songwriter at Meadow Green Music. I gave him a cassette of some of my new songs and he liked them. He really liked my song “Love’s On the Other Side”. I was walking along the side of the road and he pulled up in his car and I could hear him whistling the melody while looking and smiling at me. He was such an encouraging person and he believed in my songs. He helped me a get a record contract with Benson Music where he produced my first album.

Jonathan’s recording skills would always make my voice sound great and he once told me, “he could record my voice on the highway and it would sound great”. Every song he produced was played on the radio station.

He also believed in my piano playing skills and asked me to play in the studio on my first album. He gave me the confidence to play and record piano.

While laying down the vocals to the songs, he would have me sing several takes and he would ultimately mix them into one final, beautiful vocal. I remember one time, while singing the vocal on the song ‘Whatever You Ask” he said the song needed a bridge. He wasn’t afraid to speak what he heard from his heart and that’s what made him such a great producer. He was right, and right away I heard a bridge and lyrics. I was inspired to write this and then he recorded me singing the vocals on this bridge which he later mixed into the final song.

He was a joy to work with and he made recording music fun. He had a little trick he used to play, he wouldn’t tell me when he was recording so I had no time to get nervous. He added beautiful harmonies on “Simple Devoted and True”, “Whatever Is Lovely” and so many other songs.

He surprised me one time when he brought in Bob Carlyle to sing background vocals on the song “Jesus Answers”. After the singing was completed, Jonathan mixed his vocal takes into a final beautiful song. What a powerful. passionate surprise that was!

Four years ago, in 2014, while traveling near Ohio he called me to see if I had any songs to record? I told him “Yes, I did”, that I had two new ones and one to mix my vocals on and that I’d like to combine then into a new album, “Blind Now I See”. He stopped by my house and recorded these two songs “Looking Forward” and “Perfect Timing” plus he mixed my vocal on my new song “Blind Now I See”. Here is the link to the video of the song, “Looking Forward”. He helped me achieve my goal of creating an album with nine new worship songs on it.

Though I am sad I can’t see Jonathan David Brown right now, I still recall the happy times and wonderful memories of being in the recording studio with him and I look forward to worshiping and dancing with him again in Heaven!

Thank you Jonathan for sharing your skills and for your beautiful musical works, your friendship in Christ and for whom you are in your Heavenly Father. I pray we all keep looking forward to Him and the joyous celebration we will realize when one day we are all together in heaven with Christ.
