Story behind the song
I wrote this song for a church service but found myself learning a lot about Peter, and humility, while writing it.
Lyrics
Simon, Son of John based on John 21:15-17 Refrain One: Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Yes, Lord, you know how much I love You Simon, son of John, feed my sheep. Refrain Two: Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Yes, Lord, oh don’t You know how much I do? Simon, son of John, feed my sheep. Verse One: Why does He ask? Doesn’t He know my heart? How I have yearned for Him From the very start Oh Lord, am I not worthy to follow You? Verse Two: Doesn’t He know How He has pierced my heart I, who have loved Him so From the very start Oh Lord, am I not worthy to follow You? Lord, am I not worthy to follow You? (interlude) Verse Three: How well He knew Right from the very start That I’d deny Him thrice And would break His heart Oh Lord, I am not worthy to follow You Refrain Three: Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these? Yes, Lord, but I’m a weak and broken man Then Simon, son of John, you can feed my sheep. Simon, son of John, feed my sheep.
