Angry Words! Oh, Let Them Never

Sing with Me (1969), p. B-11

1. Angry words! oh, let them never From the tongue unbridled slip; May the heart’s best impulse ever Check them ere thy soil the lip.

“Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey the Father’s blest command: “Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey His blest command.

2. Love is much to pure and holy, Friendship is too sacred far, For a moment’s reckless folly Thus to desolate and mar.

“Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey the Father’s blest command: “Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey His blest command.

3. Angry words are lightly spoken; Bitt’rest tho’ts are rashly stirred— Brightest links of life are broken, By a single angry word.

“Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey the Father’s blest command: “Love one another,” thus saith the Savior, children obey His blest command.
