Representative Text

1 Hear the Saviour saying, “Come to me,”
Over the sea of Galilee;
Sad, erring soul, He gently speaks to thee,
Over the sea of Galilee.

Chorus:
Over the sea, beautiful sea,
Calling to thee, “Come unto me,”
Over the sea, beautiful sea;
Calling to thee, “Come unto me,”
Over the sea, beautiful sea of Galilee.

2 ‘Tis the call of mercy; heed the voice,
Over the sea of Galilee;
Penitent one, Christ bids thy heart rejoice,
Over the sea of Galilee. [Chorus]

3 Turn from sin to Jesus, trust His word,
Over the sea of Galilee;
Yield to the tones so often sweetly heard,
Over the sea of Galilee. [Chorus]
