Based on John 21: 1-14, this ballad recalls the miracle of the fish, where Simon Peter and other disciples were fishing all night, catching nothing, to be greeted by Jesus on the shore upon their return and asked to cast out one more time to the right. We often feel disheartened like these disciples were, but are still challenged to ‘Cast out to the right’ and not give up the fight.

Lyrics

Chorus:
Cast out on the right
Then the net will bite
Cast out on the right
Don’t give up the fight

Verse 1:
After fishing all night for no return
Simon Peter and crew began to yearn
For more than fish, was what they sought
Then they saw a man they thought

CHORUS

Verse 2:
The man the were about to meet
Asked if they caught some fish to eat
Upon their boat, they said “NO”
The man replied, give that right side a go

CHORUS

Verse 3:
When they figured that the man was Him
Simon Peter jumped out, began to swim
That babe they killed from Bethlehem
For a third time now, appeared to them

CHORUS

Verse 4:
Just like He said at Galilee
Drop those nets and follow me
Don’t lose faith, I’m with you still
Spread My word, do My will

(KEY CHANGE CHORUS)
Cast out on the right
Then the net will bite
Cast out on the right
Don’t give up the fight
