Representative Text

1 Lord of Galilee, Lord of Galilee,
We Thy voice of love would now obey;
And we follow Thee, gladly follow Thee,
Where Thy loving hand shall lead the way.

Refrain:
Then on, Then on,
Thy call with joy obey;
Then on, Then on,
With joy where Thou hast trod.
Then on we follow on,
Thy call with joy obey;
Then on, Then on,
Paths of service ever lead to God.

2 Lord of Galilee, Lord of Galilee,
Saddened hearts to Thee for comfort came;
We would helpers be, joyous helpers be,
Bringing cheer to others in Thy name. [Refrain]

3 Lord of Galilee, Lord of Galilee,
We would follow where Thy steps have trod;
Ever faithfully, ever faithfully,
For the path of service leads to God. [Refrain]
