Heart of Love Lariat, For You Designs by Deborah J. Birdoes

Heart of Love

Forgive these people
Is all that you said,
As a crown of thorns
Were laid on your head.

Forgive these people
Was on your mind,
As your back was whipped
One more time.

Forgive these people
Came from your heart,
As you gave your life
For our fresh new start.

Forgive these people
You cried out alone,
With a purpose in mind
To shepherd us home!

Now forgive me Father
For I have sinned.
Teach me your heart
Yes Father, once again!

"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they have done.
Luke 23:24

This is and has been the Father's work from the beginning-
to bring us into the home of His heart.
George Macdonald

The Message
The "heart" of Jesus is revealed by what Jesus said to his Father
while He hung on the cross for us!
