Fishermen lower their nets
Drag for red snapper
Maybe orange roughy,
Cod, tuna, salmon and deeper for halibut,
Nets that spread far and wide
Deep into the seas
Far into the oceans to gather a rich harvest.
The Spirit of the Lord always works on the Earth
Thousand times thousands of holy angels also gather
Busy with perfection carried on winds of scented prayers,
Yes, work the works of our Lord, their Lord.
Human lives throughout the nations
Come, and then they go
Rise up and sit down
Lay down and sleep, awaken once more
Stand up refreshed, sustained by our God;
Good words are spoken, searching hearts seek to hear
Books and articles, sermons in abundance
Spiritual things read by many.
Then, the ancient Holy Book in a multitude of languages
Is spread across the world
Passed from hand to hand
Father to son, mother to daughter
Generation to generation.
The Holy Spirit of Israel’s Messiah moves powerfully
The net of Yeshua very large
The net of the Lord runs very deep
Incredible circumstances artfully designed as an exquisite tapestry
Within cultures, within every language,
Within individuals, within nations!
The holy net of redemption continues to widen
Timeless Salvation spreads across, through all the Earth
Every generation from the beginning to the end!
As Peter and Andrew, James and John and the many others
True fishers of men and women
One in the market with Paul
One along a road with Philip
And then another “woman at the well” with Gary.
The prize of Heaven
Harvest of eternity
More than a banquet
But a continual marriage feast and celebration
Set, prepared in honor before the only King;
Caring arms of the Lord very strong
Peacefully reach today very deep into the sea of all humanity.
