1 Each cooing dove and sighing bough,
That makes the eve so blest to me,
Has something far diviner now,
It bears me back to Galilee.
O Galilee! sweet Galilee!
Where Jesus loved so much to be;
O Galilee! blue Galilee!
Come, sing thy song again to me!
2 Each flow'ry glen and mossy dell,
Where happy birds in song agree,
Thro' sunny morn the praises tell
Of sights and sounds in Galilee. [Chorus]
3 And when I read the thrilling love
Of Him who walked upon the sea,
I long, oh, how I long once more
To follow Him in Galilee. [Chorus]
