Seventy Times Seven

Friday, May 18, 2012



The one word that has filled me today is "forgiveness", and this reminded me of an old song that I have loved back in the 1980s: David Meece's Seventy Times Seven.

I have obviously lost the cassette with the song and even if I had it, I won't be able to play it. Thankfully there is YouTube.

This prison has no walls
This bondage has no chains
My memories have no mercy
There's no one left to blame
Wish I could force back
The hands of time
And right every wrong
Grant me just this one last chance
Before it's gone, gone, gone

How could I be so blind as to doubt your love?
How could I go on living without your love?

Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
I'm so afraid of what I've become

For all the promises laid to waste
For all the seeds unsown
For all the justice I never faced
I must now atone
Is there a soul that can't be saved
Is there a heart that has no hope
Is there a peace that can still be made
Please say it's so

How could I be so blind as to doubt your love?
How could I go on living without your love?

Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
I'm so afraid of the man I've become

Seventy times seven
Will you forgive me for all that I've done
Seventy times seven
Your love can save me from what I've become

Seventy times seven
