What would
You be fishing for --
Would you be fishing
For the souls of mankind --
Would you be seeking
Salvation for all --
Would you
Have the gear
Needed at hand
And patience
For the guilty man...
Would you arise early
Without complaint
To fish the seas
Of life --
When the storms
May appear
To create for you
Toil and strife...
Would you be
The fisher
Our Holy Father
Expects you to be
Or tuck your head
Beneath the covers
There to never see --
That there are those
Who need the fisher --
The one who seeks
Salvation
Of the souls --
Of the lost
And the one
Who is willing
To present the WORD
At any cost...
Would you be the fisher --
The one presented
With the opportunity
To help everyone
Know our Savior
And lose the scales
From their eyes
And to truly forever
SEE...
