11-18-14 Be Careful What You Say

Back of the Choir

tell tales

Beware the idle words that you would say,

The boastful, hurtful things slid off your tongue;

You’ll hear them once again on judgment day,

And you will be ashamed of all that dung.

You tell a dirty joke in whispered tone,

Make fun of other people to your friend,

But every syllable you’ll one day own,

And how will you to Jesus then defend?

It’s easier to go along the crowd,

Than keep your mouth shut or not go at all;

Make sure the things you say will make God proud,

For they will be repeated in His hall.

If you must speak, tell all about your Lord,

For everything you say will be restored.

~~~~~~~~~~~

But I say unto you,

That every idle word that men shall speak,

they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Matthew 12:36 KJV
