Forgive Us, Jesus

When you test us, Lord,

We oft fail the test,

Although we know

Which way you have blessed.

 

*******

When we have trials

Our wills may be weak,

Although we know

Whose strength to seek.

 

*******

When we speak aloud

Our words may distress,

Although we know

To love is best.

 

*******

O Lord, change our hearts

And help us refrain

From causing hurt

And needless pain.

 

*******

Forgive us, Jesus,

When we do wrong.

Make us faithful,

Loving and strong.
