10271. O Galilee, Sweet Galilee!

1 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
O land where prophets trod;
O land most sacred in our eyes,
Where walked the Son of God!
We praise the name that hallowed Thee,
Dear Jesus, blessèd name;
As long as tongue shall sound His praise,
So long thy deathless fame.

Refrain:
O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
O land where prophets trod;
O Galilee, sweet Galilee,
Where walked the Son of God.

2 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
Thy hills are sacred now;
Whose rocks did lend, on wearied nights
A pillow for His brow,
Or from whose crests, where cedars bend,
In silent twilight hour,
He stood enwrapped in prayerful mood,
Awaiting God-sealed power. [Refrain]

3 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
We claim thee as our own;
Where first He came, whose mission was
To bind all flesh in one;
O native land, O covenant land,
Of earth’s most royal king!
We give thee mead of blessèd praise,
While we His glory sing. [Refrain]
