You take all the pieces of my life
put them back together make it all alright
oh. You forgive me
Only You can heal my broken heart
make all things new with a brand new start
oh... You forgive me
You forgive me
I try so hard to do things right
But I make the wrong choice sometimes
and You forgive me
No one knows me God like You
You see who I am not what I do
and You forgive me

But I make the wrong choice sometimes
and You forgive me
No one knows me God like You
You see who I am not what I do
and You forgive me
You take all the pieces of my heart
put them back together make it all alright
oh. You forgive me
Only You can heal my broken heart
make all things new with a brand new start

You take all the pieces of my heart
put them back together make it all alright
oh. You forgive me
Only You can heal my broken heart
make all things new with a brand new start  oh... You forgive me You forgive(2)

Forgive, forgive forgive one another this is what we should do
Forgive, forgive forgive one another even as God has forgiven you
70 times 7 (seventy times seven)
We should forgive one another
Sisters and brother loving each other
We should forgive one another
Forgive, forgive forgive one another this is what we should do
Forgive, forgive forgive one another even as God has forgiven you
Always forgiving (always forgiving)
Ready to make a new start
Loving each other with all of our hearts
We should forgive one another
Forgive, forgive forgive one another this is what we should do
Forgive, forgive forgive one another even as God has forgiven you (2)

 It's the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those who don't deserve
It's the opposite of how you feel
When the pain they caused is just too real
Takes everything you have to say the word
Forgiveness, forgiveness
It flies in the face of all your pride
It moves away the mad inside
It's always anger's own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge
Say you've got a right to hold a grudge
It's the whisper in your ear saying set it free
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness
It'll clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what its power can do
So let it go and be amazed by what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness
I want finally set it free
Show me how to see what your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me
Forgiveness, O forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness

Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Cast me not away
From thy presence oh Lord
And take not thy holy Spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God

From thy presence oh Lord
And take not thy holy Spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me

At The Cross

At The Cross lyrics © Warner Chappell Music, Inc, Universal Music Publishing Group

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3n2uiHJ7YE

Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sov'reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light
And the burden of my heart rolled away  (rolled away)
It was there by faith I received my sight
And now I am happy all the day
Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine
And bathed in its own blood
While the firm mark of wrath divine
His soul in anguish stood
Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in
When Christ, the mighty Maker died
For man the creature's sin
Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness
And melt my eyes to tears
But drops of grief can ne'er repay
The debt of love I owe
Here, Lord, I give myself away
'Tis all that I can do

God Forgave

 God didn't have to do this
He didn't have to give so much
But he gave it all
When He gave His Son
Then Jesus came to save us
Came to forgive our every sin
And He gave His life
So we could live
No matter how this world will test me
I know how my Jesus loves me
He is all I'll ever need
Surely I will fail and fall down
But God won't even see my sin
Coz Jesus washed it all away
God forgave.
