The fishermen of Gallilee

The fishermen of Gallilee, disciples of Jesus, called to be,

Learning how to live by Faith, they obeyed when He said 'follow Me.'

They went out to fish with their nets one very stormy night,

And as a storm blew up, they saw Him walk and got a fright;

They thought it was a ghost, But they soon found out,

It was Jesus walking there, and soon their boat came about.

Another time when they were on the sea, as Jesus did stand and talk,

He then said we'll go the other side by boat, we won't walk;

And as they started out with their boats into the deep,

Jesus went to the back of the boat, and went to sleep.

Now as they travelled, the weather changed, and a storm did blow,

And the Fishermen came so afraid, Fear was all they did know;

They went to Jesus and woke Him, then said don't you really care,

That we're in danger, but why couldn't they realize, Jesus was there;

Jesus then stood up, rebuked the storm, and the storm quietened down,

Jesus said Peace, and peace came, No longer their faces did frown.

The fishermen learnt many things, and so do learn them, it's so,

That trusting in Jesus, for everyone, is the only way to go;

But with trust and faith, helps us to cope in life,

When sin causes us to go wrong, brings about strife;

Just keep on believing, and try not to doubt,

You too like the fishermen, you'll no longer pout.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
