"The Conversion of Saint Peter"

I, I will make you, I will make you fishers of men.
Lord, depart, go away, I'm a sinful man.
Weep not. This maid is not dead. She sleeps.
And He told that little girl to "Get up." And she did.
Who do men say that I am?
Who do you say that I am?
Thou art the Son of God!
The Son of Man must suffer many things. And be rejected by the Cheif Priests.
No, Lord. No, Lord, not You. No.
Simon, Satan wants to have you, that he may sift you like the wheat.
But I have prayed that your faith fail not. When you are converted strengthen your brethren.
But, Lord, I'm ready to go with you now unto jail, unto death.
No, Peter. No, Peter, not you. No.
I stood there with Him on the Mount.
I heard the Voice from Heav'n say, "This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!"
