There was a man named John
who became Jesus best friend
he followed his pathway
going through every twist and bend

John left his father Zebedee
to follow the Jesus way
he went with Peter and James to Gethsemane
there to see Jesus go to pray

John’s mother was Salome
who requested John to sit at Jesus right side
in the new kingdom to come
was a real mark of her pride

John told many things of Jesus
throughout his gospel
acts of mercy and healing
words of love and comfort as well

Jesus great high priestly prayer
tells of praying for his own
John relates this in 17th of John
where God’s truth is clearly shown

John’s epistles were from his pen
teaching believers to live in love
as those who knew love divine
were clearly filled from above

John’s final piece of scripture 
is God’s final revelation
showing mans final destiny
which God planned before creation
