Angry words, oh how they sting!
In our minds they continue to ring.
Angry words can part friends.
Why don't we work to make amends!
Over my mouth I need control
so my words don't take a heavy toll.
I don't want my family torn apart
by careless words that sicken the heart.
Father, help me show others it's you I seek,
tasting my words before I speak.
Never let anger rule my life
leaving a trail of pain and strife.
When hurt I'll bring you my care
lifting that person up in prayer.
Over my heart and mouth reign
so I'll never cause others pain.
