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.
