Merciful Mouth

"Moses… heard the voice of One speaking unto him from off the mercy seat" (Numbers 7:89).  "Come and see the works of God…  Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul" (Psalm 66:5,16).  "Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction… A virtuous woman… openeth her mouth with wisdom" (Proverbs 31:8,10,26).  "That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you… that your joy may be full" (1 John 1:3,4).    

When Moses listened to the Savior
From where the mercy seat was placed,
His mouth declared the loving favor
That tabernacle shadows traced. 

Yet now we hear our Savior say
To take His Word to every nation  
And bid them come and see today
The works of God in His salvation. 

Let every mouth of mercy warn
Of the destruction yet that looms
For those who are content to scorn
Until they enter hopeless tombs. 

We thank You, Lord, that by Your Word
Our mouth may thus be merciful,
Declaring what we've seen and heard
With joy to every precious soul.
