A word from God lead to creation.
A word from you can cause elation
or crush a tender, eager spirit
that’s devastated when they hear it.
So, as you ride your trail through life
avoid the words that lead to strife.
Sweet, loving words are so much greater
in case you have to eat them later.
We’re better off if we remember
words of love, so soft and tender
uplift and edify a soul
and as a Christian, that’s our goal.
