10. Forgive Me

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James



 

For all the times I’ve failed You, Lord
Forgive me
For all the ways I’ve fallen short
Lord, forgive me now
God, I’m so in need of grace
I fall upon my face
Forgive me

You see the tears fall down my face
Forgive me
Take my fear, Lord, take my shame
Lord, forgive me now
Purify me, make me new
Like only You can do
Forgive me now

Lord, we come to honor You
We are forgiven
We bring our love and thanks to You
We are forgiven now

God we praise You for Your grace
Before You we are raised
Forgiven
God we praise You for Your grace
Before You we are raised
Forgiven
Forgiven

Behind the Song:
“This song has a really cool story. I actually heard it for the first time four or five years ago at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago. I was so moved by hearing the song in the service that I went up to the worship team afterwards and asked about this song. I ended up meeting the writer—he had actually just written ‘Forgive Me’ for that particular service. To me it was so inspired and so anointed that I asked him if he would send me a tape of the song—with the idea of maybe recording it. He sent it to me probably six months to a year later and I’ve had it sitting in a drawer for literally years. Every once in awhile I’d pull the song out and listen to it again—and really be touched by it. I re-discovered the song recently –and once again was profoundly moved. The story gets even more intriguing. I’m soon going on tour with BarlowGirl—they’re really good friends of mine. We get together and talk about God and life from time to time and I love those girls. When we got together to sing on this track, it turned out that they actually know the writer—his wife was a vocal coach for them—and they also go to Willow Creek. It was amazing when we got together and realized all the connections we had to this song and how God brought us together on it. When I listen to it, I’m moved to worship God for His grace towards me and also to realize my own sin. It’s a song really of confession—something that’s too often absent in our lives as Christians… to our own detriment. This song reminds me of the everlasting beauty of God’s grace.” - Rebecca St. James
