Fisherman's Prayer

Fisherman's Prayer

God grant that I may live to fish

For another shining day,

But when my final cast is made

I then most humbly pray,

When nestled in your landing net

As I lay peacefully asleep,

You'll smile at me and judge

That I'm "good enough to keep."

God give me strength to catch a fish,
So big that even I,
When telling of it afterwards,
Have no need to lie.
