A Hymn: Bridle Your Tongue

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

CGS 486 # When you start for the land of heavenly rest @ Quand tu pars pour la Cité du vrai repos

The Composed Song

1. Even as thou walk on in journey of faith

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

So that thine religion ‘ll be acceptable

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain

Whoever that bridleth not his tongue

His religion is even in vain

The one that seeketh even to be perfect

Has to even bridle his tongue


2. And if thou even willeth to be perfect

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

And then you ‘ll be able to govern thine body

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain


3. Tongue is a little member in the body

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

So as not to set thine body on fire

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain


4. Even tongue is a fountain in our body

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

It’s not good that a fountain produces two things

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain


5. Oh Lord set a watch even before my mouth

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Keep he door of my lips from evil words

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain


6. Let the word of my mouth mix with thy grace

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

That is seasoned even with the salt of grace

Thou even have to bridle thine tongue

Chorus/Refrain
