Jesus Sang to Fishermen

Full Text

Jesus sang to fishermen
near the Galilee,
"Put away your nets and come,
come and follow me."
Jesus, sing your song to us
in our life today.
We will also follow you.
Sing to us, sing to us, sing to us, we pray.

Jesus sang to publicans,
sinners in disgrace,
"I have treasures for your heart.
Come, receive God's grace."
Jesus, sing your song to us
in our life today.
We will be forgiven too.
Sing to us, sing to us, sing to us, we pray.

Jesus sang to castaways--
lepers, sick, the lame,
"Welcome to God's family.
Come and share my name."
Jesus, sing your song to us
in our life today.
We will be God's children too.
Sing to us, sing to us, sing to us, we pray.

Jesus sang to those with doubts,
"Must you touch and see?
Watch and listen for yourselves.
Come, believe in me."
Jesus, sing your song to us
in our life today.
We will also trust your love.
Sing to us, sing to us, sing to us, we pray.
