Luke 23:34; Isaiah 53:7; Matthew 5:44
F ather, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
O h, Lord! How could You have spoken so?
R oguishly both Jews and Romans treated You, but
G racious were Your words of compassion for the foe.
I nnocent of any guilt, yet You did not protest;
V icious could have been Your speech, but an
E xample You chose to set in that
N eighbor alone should not be the receiver of our love.
E nemy also should we bless and
S end prayers for them to God above. Thank You, Lord, for
S howing us at death what You taught us in life: forgiveness.
