Representative Text

1 My heart goes out to Galilee;
Along its shore I fain would be,
Upon its breast the sore distressed,
In mercy met the Savior blest.

Dear Savior, come while on the sea,
And still the storm, speak peace to me;
Remove my fear and all my dread,
And say, ’Tis I, be not afraid!

2 E’en while the waves were running high,
To them He spake, Fear not, ’tis I!
So our frail bark is on the sea,
Where heavy waves clash wild and free. [Refrain]

3 Blest Savior, come, say, Peace, be still;
And guide our bark to Zion’s hill;
Then in that land of peace and rest,
We’ll praise Thy name with all the blest. [Refrain]
