"Losing" as written by Mike Donehey, Jeff Owen and Ruben Juarez....
I can't believe what she said
I can't believe what he did
Oh, don't they know it's wrong
Don't they know it's wrong
Well maybe there's something I missed
But how could they treat me like this
It's wearing out my heart
The way they disregard

This is love or this is hate
We all have a choice to make

Oh, Father wont You forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin' (oh no)
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
'Cause I feel like the one losin'

Well it's only the dead that can live
But still I wrestle with this
To lose the pain that's mine
Seventy times seven times
'Cause Lord it doesn't feel right
For me to turn a blind eye
Though I guess it's not that much
When I think of what You've done

This is love or this is hate
We gotta a choice to make

Oh Father won't You forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin' (oh no)
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
'Cause I feel like the one losin'

Why do we think that our hate's gonna break a hard heart
We're rippin' arms over wars that don't need to be fought
'Cause pride wont let us lay our weapons on the ground
We build our bridges up but it's just to burn them down
We think our pain is own apologies and get them to stop
Well truth be told it doesn't matter if their sorry or not
'Cause freedom comes when we surrender to the sound
Of Your mercy and Your grace, Father, send Your angels down

Oh Father wont you forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin'
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
'Cause I feel like the one losin'
I feel like I've been losing

Oh Father wont you forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin'
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
'Cause I feel like the one losin'
I feel like I've been losing

Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
'Cause I feel like the one losin'

    My InterpretationAMAZING SONG! I recently went through a tough breakup and played this song over and over again. I'd sing "Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them, cause I feel like the one losing" (but replaced them with him) and as bizarre as it sounds, it really just gave me hope. I could choose to be bitter or realize that God has someone better!<3

    Song MeaningThis song is so meaningful to me!! I can relate so much. I was physically and sexually abused several times and I still to this day have trouble forgiving them. I'm just so bitter and damaged and like the song I feel like the one losing. I'm losing the fight to be free from all this bitterness but I'm asking God to forgive them and for grace to forgive them myself. And the lyrics on the bridge are extremely wrong

    Why do we think that hates gonna change their hearts we're up in wars that don't need to be fought pride won't let us lay weapons on the ground we build bridges up but just to burn then down say we think pains owed apology's and then it'll stop truth be told it doesn't matter if they're sorry or not freedom comes when we surrender to the sound of mercy and your grace father send your angels down saying

    MemoryI was emotionally and physically abused for about 5 1/2 years, with the emotional often, and the physical rare. it was hard, finding out that my whole family denied the abuse, and blamed me for it....it sucks being forsaken. but at least my in laws know the truth. <3 <3
