Our Wagging Tongue


Our tongue is a member

So soft and so slick

Of the busybody gang

And the backstabber’s clique

First it says “Have you heard?

Then it adds “Listen close

To my sweet secret word”

Then it starts to boast

But God sees right through

Every lie we have told

With our nose in the air

When our hearts have grown cold

Because He created

Us for better things

If we’ll just speak the truth

He’ll give us truth we can sing!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
