Let Us Live Cream

Let Us Live Cream



Folks talk cream but just live skim milk...


So said a famous preacher.


For some the words just flow like silk,


The tongue, their foremost feature.


 


Lips may utter spiritual words,


May sound like top grade cream,


Put forth music like singing birds,


Just as easy as a dream.


 


Let us not speak "with forked tongue,"


But ask our God to cleanse


Our own secret faults which have sprung


From our life's distorted lens.


 


Lord, harmonize our walk and talk.


Work deep within our hearts.


Grow us strong and don't let us balk


When the devil throws his darts.


 


 


"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart


 be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."


Psalm 19:14
