Fishing in the Gold

Posted by
Punit (Pune, India) on 7 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.

(A well-known Fisherman's Prayer)
