Representative Text

1 Beside blue Galilee I stand
Where once Thy footsteps marked the sand;
I dream that Thou art with me, Lord—
That I am list’ning to Thy word.

"O Galilee, blue Galilee,
Where Jesus loved so much to be,"
Teach me, O Lord, Thy holy will,
And whisper to me, "Peace, be still!"

2 I look out o’er the restless sea,
And muse and dream, my Lord, of Thee—
O how the waves obeyed Thy will,
When Thou dist say to them, "Be still!" [Chorus]

3 And now appears a halo’d wraith!
It speaks! "O ye of little faith!"
It is Thy form, Thy voice divine,
That speaks to ev’ry heart, and mine! [Chorus]

4 Dear Master, hear my earnest plea
For grace, to walk upon the sea;
If such should be Thy wise behest,
Oh, give me faith to stand the test! [Chorus]
