Representative Text

1 A wondrous boon to man is giv’n,
A gift of priceless worth,
God’s only Son, the Prince of heav’n,
To save the lost of earth.
In lowliness He lived and wrought
Deeds wonderful to see;
And multitudes with longing sought
The Man of Galilee,
And multitudes with longing sought
The Man of Galilee.

2 He came to break the living bread
To starving human kind;
To cleanse the leper, raise the dead,
And heal the lame and blind;
He came to reign where sin controls,
To set the captive free;
Spake “Peace!” to waves and “Peace!” to souls,
The Man of Galilee,
Spake “Peace!” to waves and “Peace!” to souls,
The Man of Galilee.

3 He came to show the heart of God,
To give the weary rest;
And paths of deepest, sorrow trod
That sinners might be blest.
He loved you since the world began,
He died to make you free;
To be your Saviour, rose again,
The Christ of Galilee,
To be your Saviour, rose again,
The Christ of Galilee.

4 Oh, will you take His love divine?
Choose now the better part,
Let all His saving grace be thine,
And give to Him thy heart.
His great compassion longs to bless,—
Oh, hearken to His plea,
Make Him thy strength and righteousness,
The Christ of Galilee,
Make Him thy strength and righteousness,
The Christ of Galilee.
