I must forgive you sweetie,
‘though you’ve hurt me ever so much
I must forgive you sugar,
‘cause I need God’s loving touch
I must forgive you darling,
‘though you’ve broken my heart so
I must forgive you baby,
‘cause in Christ I’m tryin’ to grow
I must forgive you precious,
and chalk it up as a lesson learned
I must forgive you pumpkin,
‘cause ‘bout my soul I’m concerned
I’m going to another level,
that’s where God’s takin’ me
On that level there’ll be no room
No room for strife, no room for grudge
No room for anger, no room to judge
No room for bitterness,
no room for wrath
Only room to forgive,
as hatred crosses my path
So, I must forgive you honey,
I must forgive you doll
I must let go of bitterness,
I must give God my all
I must forgive you sweetheart,
and although you did me wrong
I can’t continue to sing the same,
sad, worn and weary song
‘Cause God is taking me higher,
His mercy is ever true
And regardless of what you did to me, He’s taking you higher too
So, please accept my forgiveness and let’s start this thing anew
‘Cause my God has forgiven me,
and I must forgive you!
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32

|Didn't Jesus die on the cross in forgiveness of all? We must all learn his art of forgiveness, it will make our souls shine.
|Reviewed by richard cederberg
|A timely reminder that forgiveness of another's trangressions is commensurate to being forgiven by the Father in Heaven.
The writers usage of ...
sweetie, darling, precious, and honey imparts to this reader that those that wound the hardest are often those closest to us. A fine write - flows well, and the message is grounded in the Truth of the Holy Scripture.

|I like the beat of this poem and it's message. The word "must" is an interesting choice to use in this poem. I like the use of it because you see the person grow through the poem. I feel that in the beginning of the poem, the person was just using words without any meaning behind them ("I must forgive you sweetie") and then towards the end of the poem, the person gets that words mean something, "Cause my God has forgiven me". Nicely done.|

One must love and forgive but no where is it written, like or forget.
