I Forgive is a song released ahead of i4give Day (Monday 1 February), an annual forgiveness day being launched by the Abdallah family and cousin Bridget Sakr. Tragically on February 1 2020 they lost 4 of their children.
The two families have taken the extraordinary step of forgiving the man behind the wheel as an important step in their grieving process and want i4give Day to be held every year on the anniversary of the deaths in memory of the children.
The lyrics of I Forgive are heavily based on Scripture: Ephesians 4:32; Matt 18:21-22; Matt 6:14-15; and Psalm 130:4.
“Like many others I have found that forgiving can be very challenging particularly when you are deeply hurt and saddened by others.
“But when we forgive we ‘free our hearts’ and show the love of God to others as we are called to do.
