Window Of Regret

Verily, verily, I say unto you,
That ye shall weep and lament,
but the world shall rejoice:   
and ye shall be sorrowful, but
your sorrow shall be turned   
into joy.      John 16:20   

In this life so much can happen,
That we just cannot forget,
We spend half our time just staring
Through a window of regret.

No one can take the memories,
And make them go away.
They're always there, reminding us,
Of the sins of yesterday.

But time goes by so fleeting,
And no one I've ever met,
Has ever seen a thing worth seeing
Through a window of regret.

It may seem as clear as crystal,
But it's really a prison cell,
It holds us captive in the past,
Where all our sorrows dwell.

You can spend your time regretting
Things that cannot be undone,
But you're only wasting this day,
For yesterday is dead and gone.

Give your past to the only One
Who can take away your sorrow;
Only Jesus can wash away regret,
And give you a bright tomorrow.

Yes, give the past to Jesus,
Forgive, and try to forget.
Don't waste your life just staring,
Through a window of regret.
