Power In The Tongue - Poem by Lagaya Evans

We must be very careful
Of everything we say
Life and death we hold
In words this very day

Silence your tongue for bad
Allow it to do no harm
Let only our God
Speak from your heart

Power of the tongue
Is as a two edged sword
Can be very deadly
If not given to the Lord

Satan waits and listens
For just one word to use
Waiting to devour
To bring about bad news

Always check your tongue
Let only God use your words
Be very careful to others
From you what they’ve heard

There is great power
God said brings life or death
Let no idle words
Be mumbled from your breath

Always let there be joy
Continuously in your mouth
Listen to the Lord
Don’t let words bring you down
