Seasoned Speech

"Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves" (Psalm 100:3).  "Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things" (Proverbs 28:5).  "I have spread out My hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts" (Isaiah 65:2).  "Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man " (Colossians 4:6). 

Should not we count it very odd
That there are schoolbooks on our shelves
Asserting that there is no God
And mindless matter made ourselves? 

We see this is the situation   
When God is willfully ignored
By men who scoff at condemnation
As they refuse to seek the Lord. 

The Lord is spreading out His hands
To those who mock Him every day. 
Each one who seeks Him understands,
And God will teach them what to say.

Lord, fill our speech with seasoned grace
As we are led forth by Your Spirit
To preach the Gospel in this place
While there are those who yet will hear it.
