The Tongue That Must Be Tamed

Lord put a guard upon my mouth let it flow with grace

Help me say your truth with love help me not deface

All that you have planned for me Please help me obey

and walk the path you show to me before sin fills me with decay

For I have fallen back a bit and my tongue wagged when it should sit still

And soon worry, anxiety and sorrow is the bill that must be filled

Teach me that silence is sometimes the better path

and regret will not follow and I won`t endure someone`s wrath

In quiet tones you lead me please help me to get behind

I don;t have to be front and centreĀ  for it`s your presence I hope they find

In order to accomplish this my tongue it must be tamed

Lord please help me accomplish this so in love I can speak your name
