Deep Waters

Their fishing nets were empty when they first saw the Lord.
All night they had been fishing in the waters by the shore.
The Lord said, “Go to deep waters, cast your nets once more.”
And because they obeyed, they would never be the same.

Go to deep waters, deep waters. Where only faith will let you go.
Go out to deep waters, deep waters. Harvests of faith will overflow.
Harvests of faith will overflow. Go.

They cast their nets and almost before they could begin,
Their nets were overflowing and they had to pull them in.
And though this was their greatest catch their fishing days would end.
For they abandoned all when they heard the Master’s call.

Go to deep waters, deep waters. Where only faith will let you go.
Go out to deep waters, deep waters. Harvests of faith will overflow.
Harvests of faith will overflow. Go.

~Based on Luke 5:1-11/Pepper Choplin
recorded by the Stouffer men on Come & Sing

    I LOVE that hymn. I don't think I had ever heard it before the Stouffer family came to out church for a missions' conference and I bought one of their CDs and heard it on there.
