When the tongue is used as a whip
Through toxic words that rage,
The heart is revealed from those lips
And the venom's released from the cage.
From out of the mouth the heart speaks,
No pretense can be hidden with masks.
Each word that is written or spoken
Brings a man's character to task.
Before God all must give account
For every word or deed that is done
The judgment and sentence amounts
To the fruit of the lips reaped by man.
The tongue has power of life or death
And all who love it will eat its fruit,
Whatever is written, whatever is spoken,
May crush the heart with bitter roots.
Words have a way of exposing
What is inside the heart of a man,
If it is God he is truly believing,
Or if he is just a "plastic" Christian.
