He had fished all day

So many debts to repay 

But the catch was lean

He had nets to clean

The Rabbi on the beach 

Climbs aboard to teach 

Then He tells Simon Peter

Time to go deeper

Let the nets down again

Simon answered him

We toiled all night 

Not a fish in sight 

But Simon took his word

Humbly submitting to the Lord

So many fish were caught

Another boat was sought

The bulging nets nearly broke 

The catch filling both boats

Simon fell down at Jesus’ knees

O Lord, I am sinful, so unworthy

Amazed at what they had seen

So also the sons of Zebedee

Jesus said do not be afraid Simon

From now on you will be catching men!

“And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.”*

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”

John 10:27-28 ESV

 *Luke 5:11
