“Apostles,” Friend, Oct. 2005, 7


    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.
