Music Monday ~ Forgiveness

SU says that I have very eclectic music tastes.  That is true.  I have everything in my collection from the Ramones to Justin Bieber, just don’t call me a Belieber.  And I like any genre.  I fell in love with modern jazz while working at my last job in a university Arts and Communications division and my collection includes several of the CD’s produced every year by the school but; I also enjoy a good inspirational hymn, the ping of Middle Eastern music and confess to having a crush on Keith Urban.  Most of all I enjoy a song with a nice tune and easy to understand words.

When I found today’s song it was because of its title.  As I listened to the lyrics and the tune, I liked it even more.  And when I heard the story behind the song, well, no matter what your faith, you’d have to be very much jaded by life to not be inspired.  I know I was…in the campo.

Forgiveness ~ Matthew West

It’s the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those who don’t deserve
It’s the opposite of how you feel
When they pain they caused is just too real
Takes everything you have to say the word

Forgiveness, forgiveness

It flies in the face of all your pride
It moves away the mad inside
It’s always anger’s own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge
Say you’ve got a right to hold a grudge
It’s the whisper in your ear saying set it free

Forgiveness, forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

It’ll clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what its power can do
So let it go and be amazed by what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you

Forgiveness, forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

I want finally set it free
Show me how to see what your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me
Forgiveness, forgiveness
Forgiveness, forgiveness
