Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder
Peter
What about him?
Jesus
Why should you care? What is that to you?
If I want him to stay alive, what else can you do?
You must follow me, my commandments
You must must feed my sheep
You will find that, should you falter
You won't fall asleep
Peter
So he won't die?
Jesus
Did not say that, just you nevermind
He will tell our tales to the world, he's the one assigned.
Were they written down in volumes
All the pages filled
There would not be room enough for
Prophecies fulfilled
Peter
Will you guide us?
Jesus
I won't need to. You will guide yourselves.
But the spirit I will send you, will be something else!
Just a nudging, that you're feeling,
You may hear a call
Answer swiftly, hesitate none
Don't let the movement stall!

Scriptural basis - John 21:20-25

Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?") When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?" Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me." Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?" This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
