The Necessity of Forgiveness Day 10 – A Song for Saturday: “Where Forgiveness Is” by Sidewalk Prophets

Where Forgiveness Is

[Verse 1]
Thought that I was right
Knew that You were wrong
I chose the upper hand over open hands
Bitterness over understand
Now there’s rooms in my heart
On the lock and key
Where I kept an honest love
And all my trust from the hurt that happened to me

[Chorus]
Now I’m letting go of anger, pride, and pain
I’m going back to a place where hope collides with grace again
Freedom’s where forgiveness is

[Verse 2]
While I wait so long to unlock these doors
Said “I was safer there” really I was scared
Now I’m not afraid any more, no

[Chorus]
Now I’m letting go of anger, pride, and pain
I’m going back to a place where hope collides with grace again
Freedom’s where forgiveness is
At first these words were heard to say
And my heart was healed
Now the stories changed
Now this sweeter life, I’m breathing in
Freedom’s where forgiveness is
Oh, oh, oh

Now I’m letting go of anger, pride, and pain
I’m going back to a place where hope collides with grace again
Freedom’s where forgiveness is
At first these words were hard to say
And my heart was healed
And the stories changed
Now this sweeter life, I’m breathing in
Freedom’s where forgiveness is (Oh, oh, oh)

What a great song for our topic of Forgiveness. I love this quote from the Facebook page regarding the lyrics:

“This might be the most honest song we’ve ever written, and forgiveness might be the hardest thing we ever do. But man, there is such freedom in forgiveness.

That truth is so often said and so rarely realized. To forgive is one of the most powerful decisions we could ever make.”

Song written by Parker Welling, Dave Fray, Casey Brown and Ben McDonald. Song released July 3, 2020.
