And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Luke 5:5

The story behind We Have Toiled All The Night

Simon and his companions are silhouettes on the boat returning to shore, where they find the Savior who beckons to Simon: "Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net" (Luke 5:4). When the catch is heaved up, the net bulges and splashes with success. "They inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners...And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink" (Luke 5:6-7).

Symbolism in We Have Toiled All The Night

Sometimes as we wearily draw into harbor, we believe our efforts have been in vain, but always on the shore stands the Savior: He who brings knowledge to the ignorant, forgiveness to the sinner, and food to the famished.  No matter how unsuccessful we may have been, He can cause a miracle so great that "there shall not be room enough to receive it" (Malachi 3:10).

The frame, hand-crafted by the artist, features a compass at each corner.  The corners, surrounded by the waves of the sea also featured in the moulding, tell the story of the Savior who is the One who guides us safely home to Heaven.  "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6).  As Thomas S. Monson explains, "To sail safely the seas of mortality, we need the guidance of that Eternal Mariner—even the great Jehovah" ("Guided Safely Home," General Conference address, October 2014).
