There is no other sweeter word,
that I have yet to hear . . .
there is no other sound of hope
that has fallen on my guilty ear.
There is no other pardon,
that’ll remove my crimson stain
there is no other sure release
to which my soul will ever gain.
There is no other freedom,
that I have yet to find . . .
there is no other liberation
of my soul, heart and mind.
There is nothing else like it,
nothing my ears have ever heard
. . . forgiveness . . .
is that sweet blessed word!
King James Version
“In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the
riches of his grace;”
Deborah Ann Belka
