The Beloved Disciple

 

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
So young when called to witness  Love
You  saw at Jordan’s hover of dove.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
One among the ‘chosen three’
To see the Teacher in His glory.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
At pascal meal, of all the rest
You leaned on Lord and Teacher’s breast.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
At foot of cross there was no other
But you to stay with Jesus’ mother.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
The youngest son of  Zebedee
Became a son of Mother Mary.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
You ran  to see on Easter Day
When ‘quake or angel opened grave.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
From fishing-boat at Galilee shore,
First to see  the risen Savior.

John, Jean, Jeanne, Sean...
Beloved disciple all along,
As aged hermit, the revered Apostle
Wrote of Love in your own Gospel.
