John 1:35-42 (Listen)

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

35 The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. 38 Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” 39 He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. 40 One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). 42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter). (ESV)

1. Redeemed,restored, forgiven  
Through Jesus’ precious blood, 
Heirs of His home in heaven  
Oh, praise our pard’ning God! 
Praise Him in tuneful measures  
Who gave His Son to die; 
Praise Him whose sev’n fold treasures  
Enrich and sanctify. 

3. Dear Master, Yours the glory  
Of each recovered soul. 
Ah, who can tell the story  
Of love that made us whole? 
Not ours, not ours the merit;  
To You alone the praise! 
Give us a thankful spirit  
To serve You all our days.
