O Father God, forgive us each our sins,
Not that we do deserve it but through grace,
And when in our repentance then begins
With faith to know that Jesus took our place.
We had a debt to You that Christ has paid,
Then understand that we should be like Him
To thus forgive the sins against us made,
No matter how mundane, how much, how grim.
Let us not think when we forgive a debt
That we should be forgiven just the same,
But with no strings attached to then beget,
Forgiving as You do, no more to blame.
O God, forgive us now on bended knee,
As we forgive our brother faithfully.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
Matthew 6:12 KJV
