Now That I Know The Words

I have heard the words before

But I never listened for the meaning

They never had me wanting more

I can’t say I was much for believing


I tried to  hum the words silently

I tried to  put them in a song

I  fumbled them quite easily

Never ending up where they belong


Why couldn’t I get them right?

I even looked them up on the internet

I tried night after night after night

But there seemed to be some disconnect


I tried cues from Dr. Seuss

I even asked some actors

But it was no use

I never asked the one that matters

So I prayed to Jesus

A silly prayer I know

But I know He hears us

So I let it all go



Dear Jesus, help me to learn the truth

Help me to learn your words in red

Let me learn like I did in my youth

When I was oh so eager to be fed


This simple prayer I pray to remember

All the words You have taught

Then I felt a spark , a tiny ember

I started to recall all I forgot


I’m still learning, long way to go

But like you take care of the birds

You will take care of me as I grow

Now that I know the words
