Song Description

Jesus taught us inner peace through forgiveness. After all a fruit of the spirit is "forgiving tolerance".

Story Behind the Song

Experimenting with Joni Mitchell's C# open tuning....

Broadjam Member Reviews

Good Song, a very sixties feel about it. Very well performed and overall has very good potential. Enjoyed listening.

Lyrics

Sing Forgiveness
Copyright 2009 by Toby Weiss
(Open Tuning = C#)


VERSE 1
When doubts came knocking at my door
I used to find them hard to ignore
but no more! .. mental wars

I used to let the mistakes of time
Breed waves of guilt that drowned out my mind
Now I'm the calm, amid the storm


Chorus
In time I learn to measure not
the things I see that others do to me
just illusions

In time we teach that Light is Strength
and each of us has opportunity
for Truth infusions

If we walk as one we demonstrate
Peace and Light and Joy abide within
all of us

If we walk away from this song
with but one phrase to sing along
Forgiveness ... Sing Forgiveness for/GIVE/ness

VERSE 2
One day I'll walk the roads of life
through tearing winds of hate and strife
un-touched ... by sacrifice

The peace within will bring the calm
To the world's storms and firebombs
Rock On! Inner Peace!


Chorus
In time I learn to measure not
the things I see that others do to me
just illusions

In time we teach that Light is Strength
and each of us has opportunity
for Truth infusions

If we walk as one we demonstrate
Peace and Light and Joy abide within
all of us

If we walk away from this song
with but one phrase to sing along
Forgiveness ... Sing Forgiveness for/GIVE/ness

[Special Harmonics interlude]

Verse 3
I now accept the light inside
to shine away the shadows that hide
in the corners... of my mind

Chorus
In time I learn to measure not
the things I see that others do to me
just illusions

In time we teach that Light is Strength
and each of us has opportunity
for Truth infusions

If we walk as one we demonstrate
Peace and Light and Joy abide within
all of us

If we walk away from this song
with but one phrase to sing along
Forgiveness ... Sing Forgiveness
Sing Forgiveness
Sing Forgiveness
Sing Forgiveness
