Lord, I love the great outdoors,
enjoying this great world of Yours,
a fisherman with countless dreams
of fishing in Your lakes and streams.
I cast my line, then cast my cares,
and know You’ll answer all my prayers.
I’ll catch a fish and when I do,
I always offer thanks to You.
I hope that I can also be just like a man from Galilee,
Who shared God’s love with everyone.
Jesus Christ, God’s only son.
