Prayer: loosen our tongues

gospelLord, close our mouths to lies and gossip,
To crushing words and crafty deceit;
Let evil thoughts die unsaid,
No bitter water from springs of life.

Lord, loosen our tongues to praise your name,
Among the brethren, in the church;
But, more, to speak where none have heard
The gospel truth that fully saves.
