Representative Text

1 If the Christ should come to me,
As of old in Galilee,
From His home in Paradise,
Come again in lowly guise,
If He walked once more on earth,
As a Man of lowly birth,
And should one day come to me,
Would I know that it was He?

Refrain:
Yes, I would know Him,
Yes, I would know Him,
Yes, I would know Him,
The Man of Galilee.

2 If upon the busy street,
He and I should chance to meet,
Would my heart by its appeal
Thus the Christ to me reveal?
Would He kindly as of yore
Seek the lowly and the poor,
And reveal Himself to me,
As of old in Galilee? [Refrain]

3 Would there be an outward sign,
That would mark the Man divine,
Who His life so freely gave,
On the cross the world to save?
Would I know the Crucified,
By the wounded hands and side,
If He came again to me,
As of old in Galilee? [Refrain]
