Words that are bitter should never be spoken,
Black, angry words that pierce like a dart,
For Jove can be blighted and friendship be broken
By the sting and the sorrow they bring to the heart.

But even more deadly, more cruel and more fearsome
Are words that are whispered - God shudders with pain
At the thought of the brave, noble souls that have perished
The innocent victims that slander has slain.

But sweet words of kindness, like jewels they glisten.
Who can measure their worth? It is priceless indeed.
Only God can keep record of all they accomplish
They build the foundation for every great deed.
