Poem about the four Gospels

There is a poem that I would like to share, and we sing this with the children sometimes in our local place of gathering. Perhaps a challenge for you to think of the verses or sections in each gospel that corresponds with the lines of the poem. This is following on from the previous post on the four gospels. Feel free to comment and suggest passages from the gospels for each line.

Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Took a pen and wrote it down.
All the stories they had heard,
Every deed and every word.
See how a mother mild
Welcomes Christ her tiny child,
See with the rising sun,
On the beach the Risen One.
Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Sending news of Jesus on.

God is with us, Matthew said,
There He lies in manger bed,
Christ the King of David’s line,
With us to the end of time.
Doing His Father’s will,
God’s great purpose to fulfil,
Calling to righteousness,
Taking bread and wine to bless.
Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Sending news of Jesus on.

Peter told young Mark his friend
How He loved them to the end,
How He made the cripple strong,
How He broke the power of wrong.
Blind men He made to see,
Son of Man in majesty,
Dying He made us free,
Christ the Lord eternally.
Matthew Mark and Luke and John
Sending news of Jesus on.

Doctor Luke set down with care
Jesus’ life of praise and prayer.
Told the world that He had come,
Loving, serving everyone,
Calmed down the raging sea,
Called Zacchaeus from his tree,
Shared Martha’s busy home,
Praised the faith of the man from Rome.
Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Sending news of Jesus on.

John, at last, took eagle flight
Saw the Christ with eagle sight.
Saw the glory of the Lord,
Knew Him for God’s mighty Word,
Jesus, the living Vine
Light that will forever shine,
Grace, Truth, in God’s dear Son,
He who seeks to make us one.
Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
We will send the glad news on.
