"Forgiven" is the first Christian radio single from Relient K's fifth album, Five Score and Seven Years Ago and it was released just days before the lead single. The song was officially released to Christian radio somewhere around December 1, 2006, but could be heard on radio as early as November 24. This song can be heard on Gotee Records website [1] as of November 28. The band also made the song available via their MySpace on December 1, 2006.

The song was about a real-life situation that Matthew Thiessen went through, in which a close friend said some hurtful things, which Thiessen chose to forgive him for.[1]

It peaked at #13 on the Hot Christian charts. It was the fourth most played Christian Hit Radio song in 2007 according to R&R magazine.[2] The song is currently Relient K's sixth most popular song on iTunes.
