Quick to Listen


Words and Music: Gary Miller 1994 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)

Lyrics:

Quick to hear what's good and true
Quick to hear the best about you
Quick to listen, slow to speak
Slow to say a word unkind
Slow to say what's on my mind
(Quick and slow) Quick to listen, slow to speak

The tongue is slight like the spark of an ember
Set the world on fire
And even though it's just a small member
It can take us all higher
A word can tear the people apart
Or heal a broken heart

Repeat Chorus

A tongue that's full of the deadly poison
It brings the sting of death
A tongue that's full of the sweet Holy Spirit
Is a life-giving breath
A word can curse and defile and can injure, or
A word can praise the Lord

Repeat Chorus

Don't want to fall for the wordly deception
And lose my goal
Don't want to practice a worthless religion
And lose my soul
Don't want to promise what I can't deliver
And I don't want to be cold

Repeat Chorus

(Quick to listen, slow) Quick to listen, slow
(Quick to listen, slow to speak) Quick to listen, slow to speak
