Let It Go
Lyrics and melody ©1999 by Catherine Faber
There's a wheel that some call karma that
keeps turning in this life,
Saying "hatred breeds hatred; strife always ends in
But how can the world get better, whence will come that
When the pain that you've been handed, you pass on?
You've got to let it go, let
You've got reason to be angry, but try not to let it
When you brood on hate and bitterness till that is all you
You will never have the strength to stop the wheel.
When old resentments rise in you from
heartbreaks where they hid
And you turn upon the innocent for wrongs another did
When oil upon the water only makes the water burn,
The wheel is trying for another turn.
The anger that defended you may yet your
The war is over, cast aside your shield and walk away.
If you free yourself of bitterness, it is yourself you
Forgiveness leaves you richer -- you will see.
