You know all about my teaching,
Everything I am preaching;
The struggles through my way of life,
Amidst all the toils and strife.
About my faith and my purpose,
Guided by a godly compass;
My endurance and my love,
For our Lord God up above.
You know of the persecutions,
And all of the executions;
About the Christian beheadings,
And all the other sufferings.
I have endured of the insult,
As persecutions do result;
But the Lord always rescues me,
Ensuring that I remain free.
Whoever is trying to live,
Know that God will always forgive;
If they stray from a godly life,
He will rescue them from the strife.
Because in Jesus they believe,
For the salvation they receive;
Persecution is possible,
From the people that are capable,
For the evil people will go,
To any length to twist to show;
Making it all from bad to worse,
Causing you in getting a curse.
Phony preachers love to mislead,
In most cases they will succeed;
Because most of them are misled,
By the message that Satan fed.
Continue in what you do learn,
For the salvation that you earn;
Remember all found to be true,
About Heaven waiting for you.
From your infancy you have known,
The Holy Scriptures from the throne;
They have the power of wisdom,
That God sends down from His Kingdom.
