Forgiven is the fourth single from the 2009 album Awake from the Christian Rock Band Skillet. The single was released to Christian CHR/Rock radio on August 2, 2010. The song received critical acclaim and was a moderate success.[2][3] Although it reached number one on both Christian rock radio and CHR, it has never been performed live.

Meaning[edit]

Lead Singer John Cooper said this about the song. 'I am really excited about this song, which is probably the most overtly Christian song on the album. I think “Forgiven” is a very hopeful song, and even though it’s not the first time a song has been written on the subject, it strikes a balance between being very worship oriented and honest as well. This is a song about letting yourself or someone else down, but finding the power to not beat yourself up over it and to find closure with the person you hurt.' [4]
