What Words Can Do

Words can save us

When we use them well

They can speak our truth

The truth to you I’ll tell

In quiet homes

And on the public street

Words used well

Can help us when we meet


The word of God

It feeds us every day

Guard your house

Do not go astray

Do the work

That is assigned to you

Morning till night

Live the whole day through


A man of his word – or woman

That’s the test

How we know the worst

And see the best

Do not despise the word

It says it all

Creates the beauty

Causes us to fall


Jesus gave himself

To say the word

Realised their power

How they serve

While others twisted words

To cut him down

He is the living word

This word I own
