70 x 7

Matt McFarland

Oh, Lord, Its hard to believe
How many times I’ve been wronged and deceived
By someone who calls you Father
Someone who calls You Friend
I don’t mean to be a bother
Will this ever end?
How many times must I say “I forgive you”?
Then I’m reminded of what you said in Matthew

Over and over and then one more time again
If someone needs forgiveness, give it up to them
Let go of all the bitterness
That your hearts hold in
Remember the times you’ve been forgiven
70 x 7

I know I’ve heard that story a thousand times before
But what I don’t understand is how to do it, Lord
Will You give me the strength and power to endure?
'Cause I can’t do it alone, This I know for sure
I’ve always been out to hurt those who hurt me
Lord, help me live by Your words of mercy

Over and over and then one more time again
If someone needs forgiveness, give it up to them
Let go of all the bitterness
That your hearts hold in
Remember the times you’ve been forgiven
70 x 7
