Forgive And Forget
Written by George Leon Pike, Sr.

1. I’m trying, Lord, to do the best I can,
Amid the raging tide of a troubled sea,
So, won’t You come along and hold my hand,
And calm life’s troubled waters, Lord, for me.
2. Lord, so many disappointments here I meet,
And sometimes, I grow weary on my way,
I just have to talk a little while with Thee,
So be patient while You listen as I say,
3. Ev’ry time that I decide within my heart,
To try a little harder just to stand,
It seems to me someone’s always around,
Who wants to interfere with my new plan.
4. Precious Savior, help me never to complain,
O give me strength to help someone a little bit,
For so many times I’ve thought within my heart,
I’ll forgive, dear Lord, but I cannot forget.
Help me to forgive, Lord, and forget,
For the mem’ries of the past still linger yet,
I don’t want to be bitter, Lord, and live in sad regret,
So help me to forgive, Lord, and forget.
So help me to forgive, Lord, and help me to forget.
