The tongue is a world of iniquity, a deadly weapon that we must tame,
with our words we destroy others when we slander a person's name.
Can you claim that you're a Christian when your heart is not filled with love?
Mercy, peace and gentleness are gifts from our Father above.
Is your tongue unruly? Do you bend to gossip, to believe a lie?
Do you rejoice in iniquity? Do you talk about anyone on the sly?
Our conversation must be censored by our Father's loving hand,
For we do not portray His kindness when we curse a fellow man.
We must close our ears to gossip and never take a part;
For when you gossip about someone, my friend, you've committed murder in your heart
