You know all about my teaching,
My purpose and my way of life;
My faith in all of my preaching,
Compiled with toils and strife.
But I have patience to endure,
With the kind of persecutions;
That temptations will try to lure,
In misleading contributions.
You know the kind of suffering,
Which has happened throughout the past;
Having much pain in enduring,
But was short lived and faded fast.
I have endured so much abuse,
As the Lord rescued me from them;
And will not accept an excuse;
While His judgment will condemn.
Some try to live a godly life,
Since they believe in Jesus Christ;
Have gone and cheated on their wife,
Seduction has made them enticed.
Evil people and fake preachers,
Cause you to go from bad to worse;
Misleading as phony teachers;
A sorcerer casting a curse.
Impostors want you to believe,
In everything that they say;
But actually they deceive,
That causes you to go astray.
Continue in what you have learned,
And found in knowing to be true;
The more you were taught the more earned,
In knowledge for you to pursue.
From infancy all you have known,
The Holy Scriptures that has told;
All of that which God does condone,
Reveals as His Word will unfold.
They have the power and wisdom,
So you are able to be saved;
So you can enter His Kingdom,
No longer to sin be enslaved.
