TWELVE APOSTLES

Intro

We all know what Jesus Christ did

Gave us something priceless

His everlasting love

And of course the eternal life gift

Jesus is the Light

Which delivers us to brightness

His followers were righteous

The saga of his sidekicks is like this

 

Verse 1

Let me start with Mathew

Used to work at Capernaum

Collecting all the tax due

Jesus said

Follow me

He really didn’t have to

But he did with his brother James

They were glad to

You have to

Know about a man named Bartholomew

Who prayed all the time

And the Lord was who he’s talking to

Simon the Zealot told Jesus

I will follow you

And John left five books

In the Bible just for all of you

Add the name before

To his older brother James

And you got the Sons of Thunder

Christ gave em’ the name

Andrew met Jesus

His life was never the same

And Simon became Peter

And he was forever changed

What I’m saying is…

 

Chorus

Today Christ’s followers

Is all around the globe

But He rolled with apostles

When He was on the go

Whenever evil would show

They confronted toe-to-toe

And if you aren’t aware of who they are

Imma let you know (Repeat)

 

Verse 2

Phillip he was born and raised in Bethsaida

But most of his ministry took place in Galatia

Jude was a real good dude I would wager

But don’t confuse him with the dude

That betrayed the Savior

Judas didn’t start out as an enemy

Until he played Jesus

In the Garden of Gethsemane

Peter cut a soldier’s ear

And Christ gave him a remedy

His fate was sealed

By the most deceitful kiss in history

Sadly the prophecy had come to fruition

He had to bear His own cross

In route to crucifixion

Pharisees thought death

Could hold Him but it didn’t

He rose three days later

Just as it was written

Thomas couldn’t believe it

He thought they were kidding

He needed to see proof

That the Messiah was living

When he saw the scars

Christ had his full attention

God said

Spread the ministry

And sent him on his mission, yeah

 

Chorus

Today Christ’s followers

Is all around the globe

But He rolled with apostles

When He was on the go

Whenever evil would show

They confronted toe-to-toe

And if you aren’t aware of who they are

Imma let you know (Repeat)
