Speak gently – By: G. W. Langford

    Speak gently! it is better far

    To rule by love than fear

    Speak gently; let no harsh word mar

    The good we may do here!

    Speak gently to the little child!

    Its love be sure to gain;

    Teach it in accents soft and mild;

    It may not long remain.

    Speak gently to the young, for they

    Will have enough to bear;

    Pass through this life as best they may,

    ‘Tis full of anxious care!

    Speak gently to the aged one,

    Grieve not the care-worn heart;

    Whose sands of life are nearly run,

    Let such in peace depart!

    Speak gently, kindly to the poor;

    Let no harsh tone be heard;

    They have enough they must endure,

    Without an unkind word!

    Speak gently to the erring; know

    The must have toiled in vain;

     Pechance unkindness made them so;

     Oh, win them back again.

    Speak gently; Love doth whisper low

     The vows that true hearts bind;

     And gently Friendship’s accents flow;

     Affection’s voice is kind.

     Speak gently; ’tis a little thing

     Dropped in the heart’s deep well;

     The good, the joy, that it may bring,

    Eternity shall tell.
