Learn of Me

A few weeks ago, Jenn, DeNae, and I were asked to sing a special musical number in Relief Society. We chose one of my personal favorites, Learn of Me by Janice Kapp Perry. Since we started practicing I haven't been able to get the words out of my mind. There are times in my life when I feel lost and confused and don't know where to turn. When I hear this song, I also hear my Savior calling to me, giving me hope and comfort. After this last (particularly difficult) weekend this song has taken on a deeper meaning for me.


Learn of Me
Janice Kapp Perry

I walk today along the path of life.
No more a child protected from the strife.
Now I must face whatever foes may comes
And fight with strength until the battle's one.

I trembling fear the task is far to great,
On every side the Tempter lies in wait.
What can I do? I plead to Him above,
Then hear Him speak these gentle words of love:

Learn of me and listen to my words,
Walk in the meekness of my light
And I will give you peace,
My love will never cease,
For I am Jesus Christ.

When I was yet a child so clean and pure,
I doubted not and knew God's love was sure.
I knew He lived for every bird and tree,
By breath and leaf, were witnesses to me.

But now the world would fill my mind with doubt,
And so my soul, in search of truth cries out.
How may I know? I plead to Him above
Then I recall these gentle words of love:

Learn of me and listen to my words,
Walk in the meekness of my light
And I will give you peace,
My love will never cease,
For I am Jesus Christ.

My life is blessed to have His sacred word,
To feel His love and know my prayers are heard.
With in my soul his light has found a place,
It leads the way as I receive His grace.

The peace I feel, my joy in sacred things,
Surpasses all the world could ever bring.
With humble heart I take a valiant stand.
I will obey this gentle sweet command:

Learn of me and listen to my words,
Walk in the meekness of my light
And I shall give you peace,
My love will never cease,
For I am Jesus Christ.

We were asked to sing this again for Prelude on Sunday. I hope we can make it through.

  3. Okay, I know this post is from several months ago, but I just saw it. Thanks for posting it. I had forgotten that song, and it brings back really good memories from when I was a Laurel or maybe a Mia Maid. We sang this in Sacrament meeting. Beautiful song!

    Hi there, thank you so much for putting this song on the internet. I've had a lot of doubt the past few months and really struggled to come to grips with it. Last night this song popped into my head and I couldn't remember all of the words. This has really helped put things back into perspective. I really love this song. So beautiful. Thanks heaps!!!
