     1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: 10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men. 11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.(KJV)

1. Lord, as Thou wilt, deal Thou with me; 
No other wish I cherish. 
In life and death I cling to Thee; 
Oh, do not let me perish! 
Let not Thy grace from me depart 
And grant an ever patient heart 
To bear what Thou dost send me. 

2. Grant honor, truth, and purity, 
And love Thy Word to ponder; 
From all false doctrine keep me free. 
Bestow, both here and yonder, 
What serves my everlasting bliss; 
Preserve me from unrighteousness 
Throughout my earthly journey. 

3. When, at Thy summons, I must leave 
This vale of sin and sadness, 
Give me Thy grace, Lord, not to grieve, 
But to depart with gladness. 
To Thee my spirit I commend; 
O Lord, grant me a blessed end 
Through Jesus Christ, my Savior.
