Cast in the Net!

Representative Text

1 Cast in the net and gather them in,
Out of the depths of sorrow and sin;
Out of the gloom and darkness of night,
Gather the lost to gladness and light.

Chorus:
Cast in the net,
Cast in the net.
Heed ye the call and cast in the net;
Only obey the Savior's command,
Cast in the net and bring it to land.

2 Fear not to launch, tho' stormy the wave,
Near is the Lord, "the mighty to save;"
Trust in his help, obey his command,
Cast in the net and bring it to land. [Chorus]

3 Now, as of old, he stands by thy side,
Loving, and kind, and ready to guide:
Round thee the arms of mercy are thrown;
His is the grace, the work is thine own. [Chorus]

4 Cast in the net, leave all to the Lord,
Trusting his pow'r, believing his word;
Perishing souls the harvest will be,
Jesus will give a blessing to thee. [Chorus]
