Hymn/Song Information

Speak gently it is better far To rule by




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 careworn heart;
The sands of life are nearly run,
Let them in peace depart.


Speak gently to the erring ones;
They must have toiled in vain;
perchance unkindness made them so;
O, win them back again!


Speak gently,—‘t is a little thing,
Dropped in the heart’s deep well;
The good, the joy, that it may bring,
Eternity shall tell.


Speak gently: it is like the Lord,
Whose accents meek and mild
Proclaimed Him as the Son of God,
The gracious, holy Child.
