New Testament

John Chapter 21


Night fishing on the Tiberias sea - none caught!
Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, James, John...found naught!
A man on the shore said "try the right side yet"
And lo! A multitude of fish was in the net!
John said to Peter: "It is the Lord!" Making fuss,
Peter clothed himself with a robe and swam to Jesus.
He, with coal fire, fish, bread, had breakfast on its way,
One hundred and fifty three great fish caught that day!
Thrice Jesus made Peter declare his love, then told
Him "Feed My sheep", and that he'd be martyred when old.
Of the Lord's many deeds, these told are just a few-
The world might not hold the books, were the rest writ too.
