Let My Words

Let my words be graceful every day
That whoever hears is blessed
Let me speak only what edifies
That the hearer will lift up his eyes

Let my words bring peace to troubled souls
Comfort in their darkest times
Let me speak only what soothes their pain
So that they might lift your name again

Let my words bring joy where sorrow lurks
That will bubble up inside
Let me speak only what brings a smile
To their saddened face for just a while

Let my words bring hope to those in doubt
That will build their confidence
Let me speak only what their souls need
So that once again through faith they’ll see

Let my words bring love to everyone
That they’ll know my Savior’s heart
Let me speak encouragement to them
That they’ll lift their praise to Him again

This poem was inspired by Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
