The Echo
By C. A. Lufburrow

I shouted aloud and louder
While out on the plain one day;
The sound grew faint and fainter
Until it had died away.
My words had gone forever,
They left no trace or track,
But the hills nearby caught up the cry
And sent an echo back.

I spoke a word in anger
To one who was my friend,
Like a knife it cut him deeply,
A wound that was hard to mend.
That word, so thoughtlessly uttered,
I would we could both forget,
But its echo lives and memory gives
The recollection yet.

How many hearts are broken,
How many friends are lost
By some unkind word spoken
Before we count the cost!
But a word or deed of kindness
Will repay a hundredfold,
For it echoes again in the hearts of men
And carries a joy untold.

Love One Another

Angry words! O let them never
From the tongue unbridled slip;
May the heart’s best impulse ever
Check them ere they soil the lip.

Love is much too pure and holy,
Friendship is too sacred far,
For a moment’s reckless folly
Thus to desolate and mar.

Angry words are lightly spoken,
Bitt’rest thoughts are rashly stirred,
Brightest links of life are broken,
By a single angry word.

“Love one another,” thus saith the Savior;
Children, obey the Father’s blest command;
“Love one another,” thus saith the Savior;
Children, obey His blest command.

James 1:19
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren,
let every man be swift to hear,
slow to speak, slow to wrath” (KJV)
