Give me words

By Christian Coutts













Give me words to speak
Let it be Your wisdom I seek
Dangerous and vile is my tongue
With it, curses and praises sung

Cleanse this weapon of destruction
Allow it to be used only for edification
Cleanse my soul deep within
That my tongue no longer speaks sin

Forgive me my words of the past
Put in my mouth Your Word that last
Freedom with each Word spoken
To heal and mend hearts that are broken

Guide me in what I should say
Let me be a blessing each day
Steer me from words of slander
Lead me to speak something grander

The power of life in death reside
In the words that my tongue has cried
Let me now speak only blessings
It is my heart my tongue is confessing

Give me words to speak
Allow no more poison to leak
Hold my tongue and take control
Let me speak from a clean soul

Forgiving Heart

By Christian Coutts














Lord, help me each and every day
Guide me to walk in Your way
Teach me to exchange my yoke for Yours
Help me to forgive, my broken heart implores


Cleanse this weapon of destruction
Allow it to be used only for edification
Cleanse my soul deep within
That my tongue no longer speaks sin

Forgive me my words of the past
Put in my mouth Your Word that last
Freedom with each Word spoken
To heal and mend hearts that are broken

Guide me in what I should say
Let me be a blessing each day
Steer me from words of slander
Lead me to speak something grander

The power of life in death reside
In the words that my tongue has cried
Let me now speak only blessings
It is my heart my tongue is confessing

Give me words to speak
Allow no more poison to leak
Hold my tongue and take control
Let me speak from a clean soul

Perfectly and wondrously created in His eternal love
Our Father saw through timeless eyes of the great Heavens above
That from His Presence, we would surely stray
Gazing with sorrow upon our backs as we walked away


Sin corrupted and distorted
From our hearts He heard no praise exhorted
Throughout the ages and generations
We chipped away at our sure foundations


Yet He so loved us, this was sure
That He gave to us His only Son - the precious Lamb so pure
Sacrifice born a babe so meek and holy
Our Savior to walk our earthly path so lowly


For when the appointed time had come
Bearing the weight of this fallen world upon Him
Our Savior succumbed to death so the Father could forgive
Proclaiming with final breath "It is finished!" all so we might live


Blessed with His Father's timeless eyes
He knew He could trust from death He would rise
To finish the glorious race, bringing victory with each stride
As He ran to welcoming Arms - to reign faithfully at the Father's side


The Father is the Beginning
For when we strayed left His gaze upon our backs imprinting
Yet He also is the End
From where His steadfast gaze watches for our return to our ever loving Friend
