Seven Last Words: 1. Forgive Us

$0.00

This is the first in a series of songs on the seven last words of Christ. It is based on Luke 23:34: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” With each of these songs, my goal is not to restate the words of Jesus but to let worshipers reflect on them. For this passage, I wanted to invite people to take to the posture of the repentant thief on the cross, offering a heartfelt confession.

For all seven songs, visit the Seven Last Words page.

1. Forgive us. Forgive us
for the sins that we have done
and the ones whom we have harmed.
Oh, forgive us. Forgive us.

2. Forgive us. Forgive us
for the ways we’ve caused you pain
again and again.
Oh, forgive us. Forgive us.

3. Forgive us. Forgive us
for the sins we won’t forgive
and the sins we won’t forget.
Oh, forgive us. Forgive us.
