Be Fishers of Men – Not of Fish (John 21:1-17)

Thank you God for bringing me back

Thank you God for reeling me in

To the sincere appreciation

Of being a true fisher of men

 

You made me thirsty for your flow

You made me hungry for your feast

I am willing and able now

To push onward piece by piece

 

So God I cast my words far off

And you will lead your hungry nearer

The line is baited for all to come

The murky deep – becoming clearer

 

I wait for you from dusk ‘til dawn

I do not tug at my own choice

More nibbles than the one true bite

That makes your heart truly rejoice

 

I know the task set out for me

I wait patiently by the waters bend

Carefully watching you stir your people

Thus I help you reel them in
