Mason Jennings The Fisherman Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

Early morning
Teacher talking to five thousand by the lake
All day long 'til his disciples
Told him "Master, it's getting late
How you gonna feed them?
How you gonna keep them?
Whatcha gonna give when there's nothing to give?"

He said, "I am the Fisherman
I fish for hearts of men
And if you come to me
You'll find everlasting peace
I see no difference
All are one as God's children
I am the Fisherman..."

Early morning
Millions waking in the cities of the Earth
I wake with a worried feeling
So much fighting, what's it worth?

How'm I gonna love them?
How'm I gonna trust them?
How'm I gonna live in this world as one?

He said, "I am the Fisherman
I fish for hearts of men
And if you come to me
You'll find everlasting peace
I see no difference
All are one as God's children
I am the Fisherman..."

Sunday morning
I am waking from the prison of my birth
I wake with a joyful feeling
I am learning what it's worth

Learning to change things
By changing our heart
Learning that love is the place to start

He said, "I am the Fisherman
I fish for hearts of men
And if you come to me
You'll find everlasting peace
I see no difference
All are one as God's children
I am the Fisherman..."
