1 Have you toiled all night near the shore in vain?
Push away from the shore, launch out;
Where the flood is deep cast your nets again.
Push away from the shore, launch out;
There a blessing waits for your souls to take,
Haste away from the barren strand;
Toil no more in vain where the surges break;
Launch out is your Lord’s command.

Refrain:
Launch out, launch out,
Push away from the shore, launch out;
God’s grace flows free, like a mighty sea,
And the Master calls, Launch out.

2 Have your souls grown faint with the vigil long?
Push away from the shore, launch out;
Put your trust in Christ, He will make you strong,
Push away from the shore, launch out;
Be no more content with a meager share
From your Father’s abundant store;
Ask Him largely now, He will hear your prayer;
And give till you want no more. [Refrain]

3 Jesus bids today every weary soul,
Push away from the shore, launch out;
Hear His loving voice, He will make you whole,
Push away from the shore, launch out;
Leave the shore of sin with its shallowness,
It has nothing of life to give;
Look to Jesus now, who alone can save;
Launch out on His grace and live. [Refrain]
