My lips belong not to me, I pray they don't deceive
I pray my tongue is only boastful, praising God, in which I believe
I pray I never strut about as if I know the way
I pray that God leads my spirit; I pray this night and day.
I pray I never offend a friend by speaking my words to fast
I pray my good outweighs my bad, and those are the memories that last
I pray our spirit speaks louder than our mouth, so that we never fight
I pray that people understand my truth comes only from His light
I pray for the angels God put around me, that I hear the words they’ve spoken
I pray I remain humble on this journey so our bonds will never be broken.
