What is this? That won’t let me rest in peace?
A feeling of guilt, dishonesty or betrayal?
I have done no one any harm…
I have caused no one strife;
I just want to move on, get about with my life.
I want to be free…remove these shackles from my feet,
I want to be free…to rest in sweet peace.
Forgetting about the troubles of the world, all my trials and my sorrows,
I want to move on and have hope for tomorrow.
But what is this? That just won’t let me rest in peace?
I am sorry my brother if I said a harsh word today,
I am sorry my sister, if you said “no” and I “yes” anyway.
Forgive me from on high, if I have forgotten whose I am,
For I am merely a speckle, a filthy rag, a mortal man.
So now I feel peace, I fell rest and I can sleep;
For I am forgiven from on high with a promise to keep.
