O Lord my heart is aching,
Battered, torn, and bruised.
I've been trampled, beaten and broken.
I've been pained and despitefully used.
God, why have you allowed this?
And what do you want me to do?
"Forgive" my Savior whispered,
"As I have forgiven you."
But how can I forgive Lord,
With this anger in my heart?
"By faith" my Savior whispered,
"Then I will do my part."
Darkness was yielding to morning,
His patient hand leading me on.
He lifted me on the high places,
Riding the wings of the dawn.
I arose with the Sun of righteousness,
Who brought healing in His wings.
My heart that was stony and bitter
Became a new heart that only grace brings.
Living Waters of His forgiveness
Burst forth from my heart like a fountain,
Washing and cleansing the hate and the pride
That had loomed in my soul like a mountain.
Now I have peace with the agony gone.
He has healed me and set me free.
What a wonderful gift and what great reward
The Lord Jesus forgiving through me!
