:Forgive as you have been Forgiven

My favorite quote is from the Lord's Prayer: "Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. My Response:


Our Father who art in heaven

Hallowed be thy glorious name;

Grant us all a Forgiveness New Year

Like Wise Men—make us wise the same.

Deliver us from all evil–

Close the door of hate and strife;

forgiving and forgiven for Christ's sake

Refresh our hearts with New Year life.

Let us all join in forgiving others

As Christ forgives us too–

Grant us a Forgiveness New Year

And if for now, why not all life through!
