“On the Deep Sea” Song

    • To the tune of “10 Little Indians”
    • Words

Fished all night and they caught no fishes (3x)

Out on the deep blue sea.

 

Jesus walking by the water (3x)

Out on the deep sea.

 

Cast your net on the other side (3x)

Out on the deep blue sea.

 

Then their nets were full of fishes (3x)

Out on the deep blue sea.

Bullfrogs and Butterflies, we’ve both been born again

Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Jesus is our friend

Frogs hop and butterflies flutter

Bullfrogs and Butterflies, we’ve both been born again

Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Jesus is our friend

 

Teaching Follow-up

  • Ask:
      • After the disciples fished all night and caught nothing, what did Jesus tell them to do?
      • Did they think they would get any fish on the other side? Did they do it anyway?
      • What happened?
      • Only Jesus could make this happen. He did this because he wanted his disciples to know how much he cared about them.
      • What did Jesus ask Peter to do? What can you do to show others how much Jesus loves them?
