Seventy times seven

This song from the band White Heart is worth listening, we need to forgive our enemies seventy times seven, in other words every time, the more we forgive others and bring peace, we shall be called the sons of God.

Lyrics

Lord, I got no more tears to cry

Someone has hurt me, done me wrong
I’m walkin’ wounded, oh
Lord, this pain is a knife of fire
Why does it have to turn out this way
Why do the innocent seem to pay?

How many times
Must I stand in the waves
of this crashing sea?
How many times
Must I forgive all the hurt
that’s been done to me
Let the jury go, set the sinner free?
Whoa oh, seventy times seven

Lord, I really don’t understand
Well I’m lookin’ round
for some stones to throw
You’re tellin’ me I should let it go

How many times
Must I stand in the waves
of this crashing sea?
How many times
I hear what you’re saying inside of me
But I don’t understand the mystery of

Seventy times seven

How many times
Have You wept from the anguish
of all my shame?
How many times
Have I nailed You up on the cross of pain?
You bled from a broken heart
and I was to blame
Seventy times seven

Over and over again
Seventy times seven
Lord, You know just how hard I have tried
Seventy times seven
Gotta see that I’m hurting inside
Seventy times seven
Don’t You know that my pride is at stake
Seventy times seven
So tell me how much one should take
Seventy times seven

Seventy times seven
