When Jesus lived upon the earth

He picked twelve men He knew

To help Him spread the gospel and

Teach others what was true.

He called them His Apostles, so

They followed Him with care.

They testified with power when

He was no longer there.

We also have these special men,

Apostles in our day,

Who tell us all that we must do,

And lead in Jesus’s way.

They work with our dear prophet

As they travel through the lands,

So we can know the way to live

And follow God’s commands.
