Gone Fishing

Sound and solid fishermen

Men of Galilee

Mending nets to go again

And hunt upon the sea

Yet open to the wider world

Their own philosophy

The journey of this mortal life

Whatever that might be


They knew the preacher heard him talk

Seen what he could do

Healing sick folk here and there

He was a rare one too

But then the miraculous catch of fish

Brought them to their knees

Leave me Lord a sinful man

Peter’s urgent pleas


Don’t let weakness worry you

Come and follow me

We’re off to catch a world of folk

Follow and you’ll see

Give your life to something strong

Let your heart grow great

The love of God it conquers wrong

It triumphs over hate
