There is nothing I could ever do. I could never give enough To even begin to repay. I sense the weight of debt paid.
My love and dedication falls short of this Abundant grace as all the efforts of a world That gives out of selfishness.
I often live in denial of what I must repay Though I never could repay. But the inclination must be there. I carry the weight of debt paid.
I have learned to acknowledge the debt And accept that I was debtor To a weight that would surely have crushed me.
I have learned to freely give back Of what was freely given to me. I live under the weight of debt paid.
--Daniel Irwin Tucker
There is a price to pay for every negative action and reaction. This debt can become insurmountable after a while. There is a love which pays this debt in full. But even though grace is unmerited favour, love is not a one way street--you can never be free of responsibility. When you learn this, you will find that the weight of being forgiven or forgiving, is worlds lighter than this weight of the personal & universal human debt you once owed. True freedom does not come cheap, but it is so worth it!
