It is not easy to retain
the knowledge, guidance that you gain
whenever preachers truth explain,
with unction Words of God proclaim.
So make a note and meditate,
make efforts firm to concentrate,
ignore the things that irritate,
and memorize, and meditate.
Be thankful for the teaching heard,
the truths exposed from God’s own Word;
don’t be distracted in your thought
to all that is not as it ought.
Be positive, and seek to gain
much profit, and all this retain
to help you persevere and walk
more sanctified in deeds and talk.
