Lord Forgive Us
By Tom D Blakely
Lord forgive us we have failed You
Teach us how to watch and pray
Spend each precious hour You gave us
Living more for You each day.
Holy, holy, righteous Father
Through the scriptures help us see
Where sin meets a God most holy
Flames divide eternally.
Lord have mercy, grace and mercy
Sinless God of heaven above
How could sinners ever know You
Ever comprehend Your love?
Holy, holy, Lord and Saviour
Perfect God, yet perfect man
You who shed Your blood for sinners
Make us worthy of Your name.
Lord forgive us grant Your blessing
On all those who would obey
Open up the gates of glory
To whoever seeks the way.
Holy, holy, Holy Spirit
Give us light that we might see
Jesus’ words are priceless treasure
Earnest prayer is the key.
‘Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.’
