"Sweet Forgiveness" as written by and Iris Dement....
Sweet forgiveness, that's what you give to me
When you hold me close and you say "That's all over"
You don't go looking back,
You don't hold the cards to stack,
You mean what you say.

Sweet forgiveness, you help me see
I'm not near as bad as I sometimes appear to be
When you hold me close and say
"That's all over, and I still love you"

There's no way that I could make up for those angry words I said
Sometimes it gets to hurting and the pain goes to my head

Sweet forgiveness, dear God above
I say we all deserve a taste of this kind of love
Someone who'll hold our hand,
And whisper "I understand, and I still love you"
