247. Memories of Galilee

1 Each cooing dove and sighing bough
That makes the eve so blest to me,
Has something far diviner now,
It bears me back to Galilee.

O Galilee, sweet Galilee,
Where Jesus loved so much to be,
O Galilee, blue Galilee,
Come, sing thy song again to me.

2 Each flow'ry glen and mossy dell,
Where happy birds in song agree,
Thro' sunny morn the praises tell,
Of sight and sounds in Galilee. [Chorus]

3 And when I read the thrilling lore,
Of him who walk'd upon the sea,
I long, oh, how I long once more,
To follow him in Galilee. [Chorus]
