Story behind the song
A friend of mine had some lyrics and she asked me if I might be interested in co-writing with her. I looked at her lyrics and the music flowed easily - - a few minor adjustments to the lyrics and the rest is history
Lyrics
Verse 1: The Angels cried with silent tears Their hearts were filled with pain & fears For no one knew the Father's plan As they hung His Son in the Promised Land Forgive them for they know not what they do. Chorus: Forgive them Father, for their hearts have run cold Forgive them Father, for their sins are untold Not a single tear from a sinner's face While they watched the Lamb as He took their place Forgive them for they know not what they do. Verse 2: God spoke not a word from high above As the world turned its back on the one he sent with love Three days seemed so long to Him But His Son arose & came home again Have Mercy for they know not what they do. Repeat Chorus Verse 3: Jesus fought to victory He conquered worlds & set men free If you praise His Kingdom, Power & Name Your life will never be the same Have mercy once we know just what we do.
