Twelve Ordinary Guys


© 2014 John Paul Taylor Jr.

They were just twelve ordinary guys
Like you and me and the folks we know
Twelve ordinary guys
But they built the church and made it grow

Many of them were fishermen
On the Sea of Galilee
Not really anybody special
Just folks like you and me

There was Peter, Andrew, James and John
Who fished upon the sea
And the one they called Bartholomew
Or Nathanael to some was he

They were just twelve ordinary guys
They spread the Word, yeah it started with them
Twelve ordinary guys
But Jesus chose them to follow Him

There was Philip the faithful follower
And Thomas, who had some doubts
Matthew was a tax man
And James the Lesser, can’t leave him out

There was Thaddaeus, young James’ brother
Some folks call him Jude
And Simon who was a Zealot
And Judas who was untrue

They were just twelve ordinary guys
Like you and me and the folks we know
Twelve ordinary guys
But they built the church and made it grow

They were just twelve ordinary guys
They spread the Word, yeah it started with them
Twelve ordinary guys
But Jesus chose them to follow Him
