Words, Words, Words

By Jamie Suiter

Oh the words we say
From day to day
As we travel on life’s way
Words that are good
Words that are bad
Words that made someone sad
Words that lift and inspire
Those lift us up and take us higher
On wings of eagles we can we soar
Oh how of these words need we more
Words that bring others down and low
Oh how these words need to go
As your words built a story of your day
Did they encourage any one on their way?
Oh how our words are such a powerful thing
Be careful how you use them
They can have a lasting sting!

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24

Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. Proverbs 15:4
