Give Light to Hope

Forgiveness heals,
It’s a soul’s true balm.
It shines forth mercy,
For which we all do long.

It will fully
Give one hope.
Cause a heart
Love to know.

For if we don’t,
It’s written out;
He won’t forgive,
He won’t blot out

The sins we have
In our own life
Which will further
Bring us strife.

So, take the road
Points to love.
Push that hate,
Give it a shove!

We will find
New life serene;
A change of heart,
A change of scene.

So, give it up.
Cry out to God!
We’re only human,
He won’t find it odd.

He prepares you now.
Your heart, it knows.
Be the leader!
Give light to hope.
