We Forgive You

We Forgive You
Words & Music by Dwight Liles & Steve Siler

Would it have been a girl with a diamond smile?
or a darling boy with a dimpled chin?
Years have passed and still it makes you cry
Wishing you could have that choice again
Your heart aches every day for what might have been
You blame yourself for what can never be
You can’t begin to hope or dare believe
That such a loss could ever be redeemed
You’ve been so alone
You’ve felt so ashamed
But in the midst of your confusion
This is what you need to hear today

We forgive you
Your child is safe with me
& I’m holding your child close each time you pray
Please surrender
The guilt of your past and be free
We still love you
We forgive you

Every time you hear a child at play
Or see the glowing eyes of a mom to be
Old regrets crash in like tidal waves
As you relive the hidden tragedy
So harsh and so cold
You felt you had no choice
When you can’t believe you’ll find compassion
Just close your eyes and hear my voice

We forgive you
Your child is safe with me
& I’m holding your child close each time you pray
Please surrender
The guilt of your past and be free
We still love you
We forgive you
and something else
Please forgive yourself
Your child is not alone
Heaven is our home
We still love you
and we forgive you

The words of this song are my heart cry. I am so thankful for God’s mercy and grace, and for the knowledge that I will see my precious baby. God doesn’t hold this against me, and neither does my child.

It’s as though it came straight from heaven. I felt the shame just fall off of me and I was released and set free”!!!!!

As a post abortive woman, the impact of this song for me personally was so incredibly healing. Thank you for being so sensitive.
