I Wonder Why
I wonder why my thoughts rush forth
Speaking words which I regret?
Why do I cuss within my head
When I long pure thoughts instead?
What is it all about, this self called me
Which does wrong while desiring right?
A tongue untamed, one cannot flee,
Clacking like those geese in flight.
I wonder why? I truly try
To make my speech proclaim
With sweet words that stroke the ear
And won’t defile His Name.
Yet this untamed tongue of mine
Will run its uninhibited view
You see, without You Lord, I find
There’s nothing I can do.
