Forgiven

Let go
I know the weight you bear
The secrets you dare not share
The blame and shame you hold
For sins that yet remain untold
Let go

Let me
I came to heal you of your pain
What I have given you now shall gain
As light is to dark that you might see
I came into the world to set you free
Let me

Let thee
Know your guilt’s erased
Love has now your sin replaced
With this grace one God adore
Free from guilt Go and sin no more
Let thee
Be free
