blunt the edge of truth

IF
I am content to heal a hurt slightly,
saying, “Peace, peace” where is no peace;
If I forget the poignant word “Let love be without dissimulation”
and blunt the edge of truth,
speaking not right things, but smooth things,
then I know nothing of Calvary Love.

-Amy Carmichael, If
