The Enlistment

To a greater than David

Came far and wide

The distressed the in debt

The dissatisfied

Without strength and seeking

About to sink under

Came Andrew and Peter

And two sons of Thunder

Philip, Bartholomew

Matthew and Thomas

Out of debtorís prison

Into Godís promise

Distraught came they, James

The son of Alphaeus

Came Simon the Zelot

And the man called Thadaeus

There goes forth today

A clear invitation

"Come ye blind, halt and lame,

Come ye every nation"

"To a greater than David

Come Ye far and wide

Ye distressed, Ye in debt

And dissatisfied"
