Mirror-image Lent reflections

 

1. We have hurt others

Heal them, Lord,
The people we have damaged.

Heal them, Lord,  
Until they can forgive.

Heal them, Lord,
Till they no longer hate us.

Heal us, Lord, 
So all may fully live.

 

2. Others have hurt us 

Heal us, Lord,
Till we love those who’ve hurt us.

Heal us, Lord, 
Until we can forgive.

Heal us, Lord,
Till we no longer hate them. 

Heal us, Lord,
So all may fully live.
