Take a long look before you speak
Think about what your eyes daily see
Travel the deep recesses of your mind
Before you judge anyone that you meet
If we in this world were all born perfect
Then in all things we each would win
But we have been tarnished by a brush
Painted by our fathers and mothers sin
Look at yourself and realize the truth
All the past things that you have done
Seeing all that was wrong and sinful
What if tonight a taste of hell would come?
For we are not here in a perfect state
And so often do we truthfully fail
For Jesus did say that the person is a liar
If claimed in their body is not found sins trail
So when you speak be not quick to judge
But treat others as you would yourself
Speak kind words of sweet encouragement
That you may taste of Christ’s sweet wealth.
