Song of Reconciliation

Words and Music by Dan Rutledge

Hear 'Song of Reconciliation'

Verse 1
I've denied like Peter, I've often turned my eyes away.
I've had doubts like Thomas, needed proof before I would sway.
I was in the garden, sleeping while you went to pray.

Chorus
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.

Verse 2
I've accused like Judas, and I've thrown the silver away.
Washed my hands like Pilate, condemned the Lamb and let the thief get away.
At the crucifixion, I cast lots to win the robe.

Chorus
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.

Verse 3
Like the jealous Herod, I trampled on the innocent ones.
And like the greedy Pharoah, wouldn't free the people to go.
I have seen the poor ones, and left them in the streets alone.

Chorus
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.
Oh my Lord, please forgive me.

End
Choir, simultaneous with Descant
Oh my Lord, please comfort me.
Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.

Oh my Lord, please comfort me.
Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.

Oh my Lord, please comfort me.
Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.

Final - Choir and Descant
O my sweet Lord.

Descant
(Oh my Lord, please comfort me.)
(Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.)

(Oh my Lord, please comfort me.) Oh my Lord.
(Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.) Be my Lord.

(Oh my Lord, please comfort me.) Comfort me.
(Be my Lord, oh I choose Thee.) I choose Thee.

Final - Choir and Descant
O my sweet Lord.
