He Called Me, Peter

Call me Simon, Cephas, or Peter, whatever YOU wish
I became a Fisher of Men, instead of well, fish
Jesus called me to Follow Him, and who was I to say no
I was His Witness, firsthand, of what transpired long ago

I became His Disciple, His Apostle, and His Dear Friend
Many Miracles I was Blessed, to be able to attend
I was in the presence of a Man, but also of God
I knew He was The Christ, The Son of The Living God

I was there when He brought Jairus’s daughter, back from the dead
I was there when He fed five thousand, with some fish and bread
And again when He fed four thousand, with fish and bread too
When He walked on water, well I tried it, what about YOU

I witnessed Him Transfigured before Elijah and Moses
Something that left John, James, and I breathless
I offered to make Three Tents, One for each of them, right there
God said, “This is My Son, listen to Him”, now We were aware

The Last Supper, He broke bread and said, “This is My Body”
He asked Us, “to eat this in Remembrance to Me”
As We drank from a cup, “this is My Blood of The New Covenant”
Though He was there right before me, He seemed quite distant

At Gethsemane, I fell asleep along with James and John
While He prayed to The Father, We failed to be relied upon
Though I claimed I would never do it, I denied Him three times
Even with the best intentions, We lose Our nerve sometimes

After three days, He Rose from The Grave and I was there
He asked me if I Loved Him, three times, almost more than I could bear
He told me to “Feed My Lambs, Tend My Sheep, and Feed My Sheep too”
These include The Jews, The Gentiles, and YOU, YOU, and yes, YOU
