Kinder Words

Some things are better left unsaid
They may sound good buzzing in your head
But once they leave, like bee from hive
They might need stings would they survive

And should they sting or bitter be
ďTwas better they had stayed in thee
Our words should always be with grace
Not be hurtful, cruel or base

Truth must always be with love
Itís the law of God above
Without love, a word might kill
Or grief the world around us fill

Godís word is sweet as honeycomb
And finds by faith a humble home
Within the broken contrite heart
God knows that kindness is an art

And gets more done with softer speech
And brings more honey within reach
Than harsh and cold words ever can
And so Godís Word came down to man
