The twelve who changed this world

On a dusty lane in Galilee
a group of rough hewn family men
And their equally rough hen carpenter friend
took to to walking the streets
healing the sick
making the lame walk
opening blind eyes.
Offering salvation
A life beyond this one.
Till their Friend was betrayed
by another in their group.
He was cruelly beaten.
he bled before their eyes
nailed and pierced
Mocked and jeered
Till He gave up his life
And said "It is finished"
Each of these men
then told the world
their Friend's story
His resurrection, ascension
and promise
that He will return
to take His friends' friends.
