th (85)Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9 NIV


Repeat after me, I heard you say

Listen closely and get it right

Your words guide my path

There’s wisdom to keep in sight


I’ve learned a thing or two

By watching you night and day

Line upon line, building my character

Observing your rhythms and your way


If you want me to truly learn it

Show me once or maybe twice

Tell me when I do it correctly

Instruct me, that would be nice


Knowing what I am supposed to do

Is the first step that I need

Moving toward putting it into practice

That’s a greater goal for me, indeed


Putting into action what is right and true

I’m willing, but it’s really hard to do

Let a teachable spirit reside in me

Change my old ways and make them into new


Peace from God is real for the having

In genuineness and honesty it thrives

No hypocrisy between what I am and what I do

With God’s grace and guidance, I’ll survive
