The Tongue


The biggest problem with the tongue

is God decided to give us one

In a practical sense, it works very well

We can taste our food, and say letters like L

but James was right, and he made it quite clear

Most things said would be best, if no one could hear

Like a ship on the ocean, tiny rudder below

our tongue a small portion, will direct were we go

If out of control, and left to be free

it will get us in places, we don’t want to be

We say we love Jesus, than with words we blow up

it’s like keeping water and salt separate, in a single cup

So give control back to God, the tongue he created

you’ll find freedom of speech, is way overrated!
