Lyrics
Lessons
I read of the ten lepers and wondered at the ones
Who didn't stop to thank Him for what their Lord had done.
And then, through all my judgments, a tiny voice is clear,
"Oft times you have not been the one to thank Him with your tears."

The lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Can be lessons hard indeed.
Yet, the lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Are the lessons we all need.

A parable of greatness, the talents are to me.
I scorn the selfish servant who kept his secretly,
And then I start to wonder. I ponder with my might.
Do I invest my talents now, or do I hide my light?

The lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Can be lessons hard indeed.
Yet, the lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Are the lessons we all need.

I stayed up late with Nephi. In triumph I rejoice
When he rebukes his brothers for making the wrong choice.
Oh, how I hate their murmurings, yet, all too often I
Am guilty of complaining words and unrepentant sighs.

The lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Can be lessons hard indeed.
Yet, the lessons to be learned from the scriptures
Are the lessons we all need.
