Forgive Us


Behind the Song

Based on Jesus' words from the cross, "Forgive them, they don't know what they do." this is a call to confession. And it ends with a plea straight out of the prophet Micah's mouth to help us: "Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly here..."

The Lyrics

We try, we fail 
Do too little too late 
We wish we could walk away 
We hurt. We’re hurt 
Nothing seems to work. 
We don’t know what to say 

Forgive us, forgive us. 
We know not what we do. 
Be with us, be with us. 
We don’t know what to do. 

What’s wrong. What’s right. 
Hard to see without sight. 
Blindly we come to You 

We don’t know how to pray here, stay here
All we hope is You’re here. 
Help us seek justice. 
Love Mercy, walk humbly, here.
