1 Teach us, O loving heart of Christ
what only love can say:
'Father, forgive' and still forgive
the blindness of our way.
2 Torn is the world you came to save,
it bleeds from hands and side:
slow is your Church to bear the scars
of suffering love that died.
3 We have not found your way of peace,
though lack of peace is death:
we have not fed with word or bread
the hungry of the earth.
4 Christ in whose hands were thrust the nails,
who yet for us could pray:
forgive the things we have not done,
the words we do not say.
