You said I have the power to speak and its done
Death and Life rest on the tip of my tongue
How have I used this power you've given me?

There have been times that I've passed up life of your living love
I've done more tearing down, then liftin' up
Never even thought about what I was saying

To let the words of my mouth,
The meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in your sight (Oh God)
Until everything I say,
Everything I do
Is a reflection of you

Sometimes I can be so hard on myself
I think I'm not as good as everyone else
Until I'm convinced that I'm worth nothing

You say as I think in my heart, so am I
You have your hand upon my life
I think its time I change what I'm saying

To let the words of my mouth,
The meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in your sight (Oh God)
Until everything I say,
Everything I do
Is a reflection of you

We tear down ourselves
And we tear down others
But we're children of God
His desire, is to take us higher
