12 disciples -- Ethan's version

There is something about a child singing.  Particularly a young child, who is still working on perfecting his speech in the first place.

In this case, I am talking about Ethan. I can't get enough of his little voice.

Remember his original song about obeying his parents? I laughed about that one for days. (If you want a good chuckle on this Friday, I'd suggest watching that 90 second gem!)

A couple of Wednesday nights ago, the boys' teacher at church taught a lesson on the 12 disciples of Jesus. Being the music buff that I am, I thought we'd take all of those hard Bible names and make them easy for the boys to learn--by putting them to music. I remembered a song from when I was little that had a catchy tune, and, frankly, is probably the only reason I can still remember all 12 to this day!

12 disciples
{sung to the tune "Bringing in the Sheaves"}
There were 12 disciples Jesus called to help Him
Simon Peter, Andrew, James, his brother John,
Philip, Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alpheus,
Thaddeus, Simon, Judas, and Bartholomew.

Jesus calls us too
Jesus calls us too
We are His disciples--I am one and you!

So, here's Ethan's version.  He still gets a little confused on the chorus, but overall, I think he does a bang up job. 

Enjoy--have a great weekend, everyone!!
