Randy Travis Keep Your Lure in the Water Lyrics



Keep your lure in the water, don't just sit by the shore

There are souls to be caught everywhere in this old world

Go where hearts are plenty, don't just drift with the tide

Keep your lure in the water, in the waters of life


The lord said, "Simon, haul your nets in

From now on you're a fisher of men"

Well, I like fishin',

That's why it caught my ear

The Lord knew how to get to me

And what I'd need to hear


Keep your lure in the water, don't just sit by the shore

There are souls to be caught everywhere in this old world

Go where hearts are plenty, don't just drift with the tide

Keep your lure in the water, in the waters of life


When the sea is troubled and it's hard to stay afloat

And you feel like Jesus is sleeping in the boat

Don't you dare give up on the Prince of Peace

And in the middle of the storm

You will find a sweet release


Keep your lure in the water, don't just sit by the shore

There are souls to be caught everywhere in this old world

Go where hearts are plenty, don't just drift with the tide

Keep your lure in the water, in the waters of life


Yeah keep your lure in the water, in the waters of life
