An Answer Soft

An answer soft turns wrath away,
Turns battle’s dark to hope of day.
Brings rest so sweet and harmony,
Shows heart’s surrender unto Thee.

An answer soft turns wrath away,
Makes blooms of joy replace the gray.
To answer loud is pride, I know,
While speaking soft God’s love will show.

An answer soft turns wrath away,
Please teach me this, oh Lord, I pray,
That I might in Thy will be found,
Peaceful and resting, safe and sound.

(Based on Proverbs 15:1a)

    It is a beautiful poem! It does speak to us about our Lord, His answer soft to us when He so willingly allowed Himself to be placed on the cross. His answer soft ” it is finished” gives us peace to rest in his salvation.
    Thank you sweetheart Paul & Bev
