Scripture References Psalm 51
Introduction I am ashamed O Lord forgive I am ashamed O Lord forgive
Verse 1 I used to nurture bitterness To count up ever slight The world's a moral wilderness And I have felt its blight Self-pity ruled resentment reigned And no one understood my pain I spiralled down in murky night Insisting that I had the right To hate and hate again I am ashamed O Lord forgive I am ashamed O Lord forgive
Verse 2 But then the gospel taught me how To contemplate the cross For there Christ died for me And now I've glimpsed the bitter cost He bore abuse and blows and hate But He did not retaliate Triumphant malice sneered and tossed Blind rage at Him He never lost The love that conquers hate I am ashamed O Lord forgive I am ashamed O Lord forgive
Verse 3 To make no threat To smile forgive To love despite the cost For Jesus showed me how to live And trust the One who's just To suffer wrong and feel the pain While certain that the loss is gain Oh God I want so much to trust To follow Jesus on the cross To love and love again I am ashamed O Lord forgive I am ashamed O Lord forgive
