Forgive Us

Mom sent me this the other day and I thought it was pretty powerful!

Forgive them all, oh Lord
Our sins of omission and our sins of commission
The sins of our youth and the sins of our riper years
The sins of our souls and the sins of our bodies
Our secret and our more open sins
Sins of our ignorance and of surprise
And our more deliberate and presumptuous sins
The sins we have done to please ourselves and the sins we have done to please others
The sins we know and remember and the sins so forgotten.
The sins we have striven to hide from others and the sins by which we have made others offend
Forgive them, oh Lord forgive them all for His sake
Who died for our sins and rose for our justification
Christ Jesus our Lord!

Great leaders are great repenters!
