Did You Think

Did you think before you told that little story?
Did you wonder how much damage it could do?
Did you listen to the whisper of your conscience?
Do you think you'd want that story told on you?
Did you know you'll give account to God in heaven
For each idle word you utter, great or small?
Go, then, ask the Lord's forgiveness for your blunder;
And restore your tongue in service to His call.
