Luke 17:3-4 "If your brother does something wrong, reprove him and, if he is sorry, forgive him. And if he wrongs you seven times a day and seven times comes back to you and says 'I am sorry', you must forgive him." - See also Matthew 18: 21-22


Peter said to Jesus
I need advice from you
If my brother's naughty
Please tell me what to do
Should I forgive him seven times
Or one, or three, or two
Or should I just ignore him, or sulk, or be bad too?

He said:
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Seven times seven and seven times again
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Then we can still be friends


Although my friends are sorry, it's very plain to see
I find it hard to love them, when they are bad to me
I know I should forgive them
And that will set them free
I'll follow the example that Jesus set for me


He said:
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Seven times seven and seven times again
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Then we can still be friends


Now when I am naughty, I know just what to do
I kneel and pray to Jesus, and ask to start anew
I ask him to forgive me
I promise to be true
He gives me lots of chances, he loves me through and through


He said:
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Seven times seven and seven times again
Seven times seven, times seven, times seven
Then we can still be friends


(Repeat Chorus)
