SONG 130

Be Forgiving

Be Forgiving

(Psalm 86:5)

  1. 1. Lovingly Jehovah

    Made provision through his Son

    For our sins to be forgiven

    And for death to be undone.

    If we truly are repentant,

    His forgiveness we can claim

    On the basis of Christ’s ransom,

    Asking pardon in his name.

  2. 2. We receive such mercy

    When we act like God above

    And forgive each other freely,

    Showing empathy and love.

    Putting up with one another,

    Putting hurtfulness away;

    Showing honor to our brother,

    Showing love’s surpassing way.

  3. 3. Mercy is a virtue

    That we all should cultivate.

    It will keep us from resentment,

    From the bitterness of hate.

    When we imitate Jehovah,

    Who is unsurpassed in love,

    We will truly be forgiving;

    We will be like God above.
