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.

LORD FORGIVE THEM

Michele Wagner

Reference: Hebrews 10;19, Luke 23:34, Psalm 22:1, Isaiah 53:4.

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.

Chorus

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.

Bridge

With love the veil has been torn in two.

With love I cry and commit my spirit to you Lord

Chorus

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.

Coda/End

I pray they have your life

I pray they have your Life!
