"The Fisherman"
by Judith Johnson Kypta

From the shore of Galilee...
Fisherman sailed one day
As they ventured on their quest
The winds stirred up
There was no rest ..........

The boat, it rocked from side to side
The fisherman started to fear
Stern expressions on their faces
A menacing storm ......Was near

They wished their Lord had come along
He......Would know what to do
But, He hadn’t and they were afeared
Their faith was thrown askew.......

The lightning flashing...Sails at full yield
The waters were splashing all about
Try as they might, they had no control
It was then...... That they began to shout

Suddenly ...Walking on the water
A figure began to appear
The fisherman, huddled together
Thinking a ghost ... Was near

Jesus called out ........"It is I"
To the men in the storm, at sea
Peter called back "If it’s really you,
Order me out to meet Thee"

So.....Out of the boat and on to the water
Peter walked, to meet his Lord
He started to sink...His faith weakening
As the dark murky waters....Roared

Jesus reached for Peters hand
"Ye Of Little faith " Said He
The fishermen all bowed praising Him
On the Sea of Galilee..........

Those fisherman learned a lesson
On that dark and stormy night
To....... Keep their eyes on "Jesus"
And He’ll deliver you from your plight!
