Launch Out Into The Deep At Dusk

It was said, "Work while it is day;
For when night comes, no one works."
Yet also it was said, "Ye do wisely;
Redeem time, for the days are evil."

Stand upon the high rock by the sea,
Then look and consider what you see.
Behold, good cloudy sunset has begun,
Soon, night falls when daylight is gone.

Your lamps, fill them with enough oil,
Have clothing for a wet and cold toil.
Gentle rain shall shower the midnight,
Multitudes of fish will gather in delight.

Like shepherds watching flocks at night,
So are fishermen catching fish at night.
Men-fishers launching out into the deep,
From dusk til dawn they fish a great reap.
