Jesus Begins

We begin again

The calling of disciples

Zebedee not too pleased I don’t suppose

Losing his two sons

Two good workers

How to make a living

Heaven knows


Jesus begins in Galilee

With preaching

Words to enter hearts

And change the world

Opposition soon will come

Won’t have an easy run

Success at first

But soon the tide will turn


And he knows how it will end

It spells disaster

So why go on

Why crucify yourself

Is this God’s way?

I thought he’d be the master

But no it seems

He’s left upon a shelf


The ways of God I know

I’ve heard it said

So different from ours

Different head

The ways of love

Not logical you’ve said it

And yet we follow him

And him we credit
