Of Fish and Men
HE boldly faced the Sea of Galilee,
SAID, in a gentle voice but strong and clear,
TO Simon, Andrew and sons of Zebedee,
THEM in their boats, a-working nets and gear,
'FOLLOW where I lead,' His eyes compelling,
'ME, I have a task, my time draws near.
AND listen, if you will, God's in me dwelling,
I am prepared, there is nothing to fear.
WILL you be faithful, follow to the end?
MAKE plans with me to spread His love abroad?
YOU are my brothers... good works I intend,
FISHERS you be; but few boats shall you board.
OF this be sure, oh reapers of the sea,
MEN, from this day, you walk in faith with me.'
