The Book of
Your Life



You should be more careful
about what you say,
and the flavor of your
 speech in the end.
For you may be forced,
 one fine day,
  to eat your words, my friend.
 
Make sure your words
 are truthful and fair,
and do others
no needless harm.
Refrain as well
 from a flattering tongue
with intent to deceive or charm.

For just as the Words
of God are eternal
and never go forth in vain,
the words of man
 are written down
and he'll hear
 them spoken again.

At the end of the age,
standing before God,
a mortal man
will be judged.
Without peer or counsel,
he'll be confronted
by every spoken word.
 
Some will be innocent,
even sweet to the ear,
 while others will cause great pain.
But the ones he'll wish
he'd never uttered
were when he took
God's name in vain.
 
He'll hear the hard
 and humiliating words
he said to his wife in anger.
He would never have been
so cold and cruel
were he talking
 to a total stranger.

 He'll hear again
his words to his son
as he brings a
 report from school.
He'll remember the hurt
 in the tear filled eyes
as he called his son a fool.


Each hateful word,
each little white lie,
that slips so easily
from the tongue,
will one day turn
and bite us back
and our souls will be undone.

Can you picture this day,
 this day of accounting
when the Judge
 is God, Himself?
He'll reach up and take
 “ The Book of Your Life"
from Heaven's Archival Shelf.
 
What will He read
in your Book of Life?
Will your words
 accuse and condemn?
Or will all hateful
 words have been erased
by the precious blood of HIM?

 For "HE" is Jesus,
 the exalted son,
to whom judgment
God has deferred.
God will not judge
from His covenant of old
but to Jesus you'll be referred.

 
The Father will turn,
when your book
is opened,
and your earthly life is done.
To Jesus, He'll say,
 in a loving tone,
"What say you, My Son?”

Then Jesus will turn
 and look deep in your eyes
 and his answer
 will be one of these two:
"Well done, My Child,
welcome Home,"
 or "This one I never knew."
 
So beware your words
 as well as your deeds.
They'll echo through the ages.
And, if not erased
 by Jesus' blood,
they'll be printed on
 your Book of Life's pages.
