#throwbackpoem: Lips Zipped

to GOD be the GLORY

~ Lips Zipped ~

By Deborah Ann

If more people would keep,
their lips zipped . . .
less hearts would be
torn apart and ripped.

If more people would use,
their words carefully . . .
less hearts would feel
so dreadfully.

If more people would hold,
their angry words at bay
less hearts would be
hurt by want they say.

If more people would use,
their words thoughtfully . . .
less hearts would be
feeling so awfully.

If more people would keep,
their lips zipped and sealed
more hearts to Jesus . . .
could be won and healed!

Psalm 141:3

Set a watch, O Lord,
before my mouth;
keep the door of my lips.
