Only All For Him

Lyrics

Verse 1

Sharp as a sword

Fast as an arrow

The tongue boasts of joy         

While framing sorrow

Crafted by my heart’s state

Bitter, vile and grim

Yet Christ in Me

Only all for Him 

 

Verse 2 

See such a flame

Started by one spark    

The tongue lashes pain    

Leaving its deep mark

Evil tempts of sweetness

Sour proves its end

O Christ in me

Conquer this, my sin 

 

Verse 3 

Dark, cold and weak

My heart has owned it

Even before I speak

Lord, You have known it

Rid my words of poison

Keep my lips from wrong

Master me, Lord

Be my only song 

 

Verse 4 

Truth will endure

Lies are found worthless

But lips that are pure

Soothe and sow goodness

Let me speak choice silver

Healing words that mend

All for my Lord

Only all for Him 

 

Verse 5 

Sing of His grace

Tell of His mercy

Oh to declare His praise

For He is holy

Every tongue will confess

Every knee will bend

All for my Lord

Only all for Him

But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.

James 3:8-10
