Can We

Can forgiveness come
When our wounds are deep;
When anger wants to rage;
When even friends won’t understand;
And with fear we hesitate?
Can we mourn with those
Who caused our pain;
Resist the call to hate?
Can we yield ourselves
To God’s healing love,
And bless them with His grace?
Can we dare to stand,
Trusting all to Him,
As we say, “I forgive?”
