Representative Text

1 Beside the Sea of Galilee
The little children played;
Through streets of old Capernaum
Their careless footsteps strayed;
And in the crowds that thronged the shore,
They often saw the form
Of One who drove disease away,
And made the dead His voice obey,
And quieted the storm,
And quieted the storm.

2 Beside the Sea of Galilee
There pressed about the Lord
Great crowds, to see His wondrous works
And hear His gracious word.
The children too were blessed and healed,
And it may ever be
That, as He taught, a little child,
Drawn by His look so kind and mild,
Would climb upon His knee,
Would climb upon His knee.

3 Beside the Sea of Galilee
No more His form they see,
But up and down the haunts of men
He walks invisibly.
And still He heals and teaches men,
And little children still
May hear His voices, His love may know,
And, kept by Him, through life may go
Secure from every ill,
Secure from every ill.
