Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man;
but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
Matthew 15:11 KJV
Bad food and drink can make a person ill,
But he’s the only one confined to bed.
It’s what comes from the mouth more loathsome still
That will defile a man the most instead.
‘Tis sin that lays in wait within the heart
And moves on through the mind and then the lips
That truly stains the soul and tears apart;
Each word that’s laced with evil sin equips.
It takes a heart made fresh to stop the flood
Of all the wickedness men say and do.
The only way is through Christ’s cleansing blood
To purify the soul with life anew.
A man defiled will speak such wicked things.
The cure for this disease is Christ the King.
