Fishers of Men

As Peter and Andrew were called to fish
   in the lake of souls of men.
So too are we called to cast the net
   just the same as it was back then.

Will your life be a beacon to guide someone
   to a home in the sweet by and by;
or will you be the one to drag someone down
   cause a spirit to wither and die?

Someone is watching whatever you do
   you are never entirely alone.
Will you be rewarded for showing the way;
   or condemned at the Great Judgment Throne?
