172. By roads that wound uphill and down

1 By roads that wound uphill and down,
Beside the lake in Galilee,
From house to house, from town to town,
Our Lord fulfilled his ministry.

2 He healed the sick; he cured the blind;
He sought for those who went astray;
He told the lost that God is kind
And set them on the homeward way.

3 How blest the homes that knew him then;
And holy yet the paths he trod!
O gracious heart that loved allmen1
O patient feet that walked with God!

4 Lord Christ, forevermore, the same
In heaven as in Galilee,
Embolden us to name thy name,
To make our lives a ministry.
