Keep watch on your tongue by remembering Christ’s loving words of forgiveness to you.

Scripture: Proverbs 15:1-9

ESV Text: Proverbs 15:1-9


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 15

     1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

     2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

     3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

     4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

     5 A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

     6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

     7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

     8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

     9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 555:
The Day Is Past and Over

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. The day is past and over; 
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee! 
I pray Thee now that sinless 
The hours of dark may be. 
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight 
And save me through the coming night. 

2. The joys of day are over; 
I lift my heart to Thee 
And ask Thee that offenseless 
The hours of dark may be. 
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight 
And guard me through the coming night. 

3. The toils of day are over: 
I raise the hymn to Thee 
And ask that free from peril 
The hours of dark may be. 
O Jesus, make their darkness light 
And guard me through the coming night. 

4. Lord, that in death I sleep not, 
And lest my Foe should say 
“I have prevailed against him,” 
Lighten mine eyes, I pray. 
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight 
And guard me through the coming night. 

5. Be Thou my Soul’s Preserver, 
O God, for Thou dost know 
How many are the perils 
Through which I have to go. 
Lover of men, oh, hear my call 
And guard and save me from them all.
