After Him

Christ found
Fishermen
Casting nets
Across the sea
Recognized
World changers
Disciple makers
Rule breakers;
Common crew
Caught his word
Tossed fish aside
Hearts open wide
Followed
After Him.

Sees you
Me too
Nets on land
Fish in hand
Busy making
Striving, faking
Calls anew
Aim for truth;
World changers
Disciple makers
Rule breakers
Soul wakers
Following
After him.
