SAINT JOHN WAS CHRIST'S DISCIPLE Saint John, Saint John was Christ's disciple, and Evangelist also; He for the sake of Jesus Christ Much pains did undergo, Because he loved our Saviour Christ, As Holy Scriptures say, And was belov'd of him also, And in his bosom lay. Chorus Saint John for love of our Saviour Did undergo much pain And never ceased during life To preach Christ Jesus' name. Saint John, he at Jerusalem Did preach God's holy word, And for the same the spiteful Jews They did him cruel scourge. Then did he for the same rejoice, That he was counted worthy To suffer for the sake of Christ, And would him not deny. Chorus To Patmos banish'd was Saint John, As Scripture doth record, For the testimony of Christ, And his most holy word. And as he was in the Spirit On the Lord's blessed day, Our Saviour by an Angel spake, and unto him did say, Chorus I am Alpha and Omega, Which was and is to come; And what thou seest write in a book -- Thus said he to Saint John -- And send it to the Churches then, Which are in Asia seven. And said the Angel to Saint John, Which came to him from Heaven. Chorus Then John turn'd him about to see, And was astonished At the sight of the Angel bright, Who said, Be comforted, For I was alive, and also dead, Now I live for evermore, And have the keys of death and hell; Take comfort now therefore. Chorus Then wretched Caesar, as 'tis said, The Emperor Domitian, Into a tub of boiling oil At Rome he thrust Saint John. Therein received he no harm, But safely from thence came, And died at last at Ephesus -- Writing declares the same. Chorus (Contributed by Frank DiSalle - December 2003)
