1 Peter, James and John in a fishing boat
Peter, James and John in a fishing boat,
Peter, James and John in a fishing boat,
down by the deep, deep sea.

2 Fished all night and caught no fishes,
fished all night and caught no fishes,
fished all night and caught no fishes,
down by the deep, deep sea.

3 Christ came walking down by the water,
Christ came walking down by the water,
Christ came walking down by the water,
down by the deep, deep sea.

4 Now their nets are full and breaking,
now their nets are full and breaking,
now their nets are full and breaking,
down by the deep, deep sea.

5 Called their friends to come and help them,
called their friends to come and help them,
called their friends to come and help them,
down by the deep, deep sea.

6 We are fishers of men for Jesus,
we are fishers of men for Jesus,
we are fishers of men for Jesus,
out on life's big sea.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
