Father, forgive me for my disdain,
For not being able to see the pain
Of someone who’s hurting and in need,
And not being able to see when others bleed.
I ask You today to wash away callousness,
And fill me with love and kind tenderness.
Wash me clean from judgmentalism and bitterness;
Let my life be characterized by kindness.
Submissive at Your feet I kneel,
As I think of Calvary’s hill,
Where You uttered those final words-
“Father, forgive them” is what they heard.
A servant’s attitude, kind and true,
Let it be mine, to resemble you.
The unthankful, and those who don’t deserve,
Let me with Your love and grace always serve.
