There were twelve disciples Jesus called to help Him,
Simon Peter, Andrew, James, his brother John;
Philip, Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus,
Simon, Thaddaeus, Judas, and Bartholomew.

Jesus calls us too, Jesus calls us too;
We are His disciples, I am one and you;
Jesus calls us too, Jesus calls us too;
We are His disciples, We His work must do.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
