Seventy Times Seven

Seventy times seven those words came through today
Seventy times seven my sins are washed away
Seventy times seven my Lord has lifted me
And a million times a million He has shown His love for me.

As I lift up a tear stained face confessing that I’ve failed
To honour You in all my ways and see the hands I’ve nailed
I feel You touch my head with love as You’ve forgiven me
And the sunlight glistens on the page that You renewed for me.

A second chance, yes, many more than that I have received
A true confession and remorse I’ve laid down at Your feet
You lifted me as all my heart just melted with your love
And here I find a fresh new day in the light shed from above.
