Fishers Follow

"They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep" (Psalm 107:23,24). "And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19).

The waters of humanity
Are filled before our eyes
With souls that meet eternity
The moment each one dies.

We see the love our Lord begets
Depicted in the deep,
As fishermen who spread their nets,
Alert when others sleep.

Follow Me, our Savior said,
And as He promised then,
We shall also learn to spread
Our nets for catching men!

We see eternal souls that swim
So aimlessly away
That God would have us draw to Him
While it is called today.

We hear the call to follow You,
Assured, Lord, You will make
Each one of those who therefore do
Like fishers on Your lake.

Teach us, Lord, to fish and wait
With training that You gave,
As fishers spreading nets with bait
To catch those You would save.
