My wife is planning her funeral. She'd like this sung. Anybody got the words ?
Maybe know if Helen's recorded it & where ?

Hi, Riggy - I was sorry to hear about your wife's illness. I hope God takes good care of you and your family.

The Sweetest Words He Ever Said
(as sung by Helen Bonchek Schneyer)

1. Like the woman brought to Jesus, who was taken in her sin,
I was so ashamed of what I'd done and where I'd been.
Well, justice called for payments that were more than I could give,
When mercy smiled upon me, saying, "I forgive."

    CHORUS:
    Oh, the sweetest words He ever said were "I forgive"
    Death's sentence then was wiped away, and I could live,
    Well, I like the part where He told about the mansions He would give,
    But the sweetest words He ever said, were "I forgive."


2. Now, if you're tired of living with the wrongs that you have done,
Come on home to Jesus, you know He's the cleansing one.
In His arms He'll hold you, and you've just begun to live,
When you hear Him gently whisper, "I forgive."

CHORUS:


Transcribed from Folk-Legacy CD-85, On the Halleluia Line, by Helen Bonchek Schneyer (1981)

I FORGIVE

1. Like the woman brought to Jesus, who was taken in her sins,
I was so ashamed of what I'd done and where I had been.
Justice called for payment that was more than I could give,
But mercy's smile was on His face, "I forgive."
CHORUS:

Oh, the sweetest words He ever said were "I forgive" (I forgive)
When sentence death was passed away, and I could live, (I could live)
Well, I like the part where He told about a mansion He would give,
But the sweetest words He ever said, were "I forgive." (I forgive)

2. Well, if you're tired of living in the wrong that you have done,
Come on home to Jesus, you know He's the cleansing one.
In His arms He'll hold you, and you've just begun to live,
When you hear Him gently whisper, "I forgive."

CHORUS:

I am very sorry to hear about your wife's illness. However, your request is a blessing to me. I have been looking for the words to this song for a few years now and I do thank you. You and your family will be in my prayers.
May god bless you.
