The righteous smile pleasantly;
and give a sincere and friendly greeting.
It’s a warm and peaceful feeling
to know you have forgiven.

Sinners
run to embrace you
with tears in their eyes:
tears of joy and gratitude,
that you have accepted their forgiveness,
as if it was you forgiving them.

Incidentally,
although God is righteous:
this is how He forgives.
