Poem: “The Chosen”

The Chosen
(inspired by Acts 1:21-26)

Eleven men gathered
Where twelve once had met
With their teacher, their friend
From Heaven He’d been sent.

Eleven men prayed
Their hearts full of His Word,
Eager to spread the Message
Of salvation they had heard.

Eleven men chose one more
They cast lots and added another –
Matthias, their faithful friend
In Christ, now their brother.
