Can You Forgive Me

The Lord has blessed me with these songs, and it is a joy to share them with you. Please enjoy the music and consider the scripture references that accompany them.

Matthew 18:21-35

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. as he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. “The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii.” He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded. “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened. “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”

Song Lyrics – Can You Forgive Me

Can you forgive me for hurting you so
The devil was in me, and I hope you know
Deep inside my heart, I’m losing control
But by the grace of my God, I go

Can you forgive me, I hope that you can
And one day I’ll be a better man
Whoa, a better man, whoa

Deeper and deeper, He’s breaking me down
Thank you sweet Jesus for bringing me ‘round
I drink of Your water, it’s giving me life
I killed the pretender, surrendered tonight

Chorus

I stare out the window, the message is clear
With each passing moment,
He’s drawing me near
Help me dear Jesus, my life’s in Your hands
This mess that I’m making, I can’t understand

Chorus/Repeat
