Psalm Reflection: Forgiveness

Here’s a reflection on Psalm 51:13, 15.  It was written by Steve Brown.

Psalm Reflection: Forgiveness
(inspired by Psalm 51:13, 15)

Forgiveness is mercy.
Such pardon and kindness I cannot fathom.

Forgiveness is unfailing love.
Such patience and understanding I cannot comprehend.

Forgiveness is overwhelming compassion.
Such sympathy and warmth I cannot reciprocate.

Forgiveness is the blotting out of transgressions.
Such freedom and good will I do not deserve.

Forgiveness is the washing away of my iniquities.
Such purity and newness I cannot maintain.

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
Based on (Psalm 51:13,15)
