The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Kind Words

“I will guard my ways, that I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle…” Psalm 39:1 (NASB)

Words are things of greatest worth,
Though often lightly spoken;
Thoughtless fleeting words of mirth,
May wound the heart that’s broken;
Or words that pass forgotten by,
May prompt to deeds that cannot die.

Kind words quell the angry soul,
But bitter railings never;
Love can soothe with sweet control,
And kindle love for ever.
Watch well your words, both old and young,
For life and death hang on the tongue.

Basil Manly Jr.
