1. “Forgive our sins as we forgive,”
    You taught us, Lord, to pray;
    But You alone can grant us grace
    To live the words we say.
  2. How can Your pardon reach and bless
    The unforgiving heart
    That broods on wrongs and will not let
    Old bitterness depart?
  3. In blazing light Your cross reveals
    The truth we dimly knew:
    How trifling others’ debts to us;
    How great our debt to You!
  4. Lord, cleanse the depths within our souls
    And bid resentment cease;
    Then, by Your mercy reconciled,
    Our lives will spread Your peace.
