Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
O land where prophets trod;
O land most sacred in our eyes,
Where walked the Son of God!
We praise the name that hallowed Thee,
Dear Jesus, blessèd name;
As long as tongue shall sound His praise,
So long thy deathless fame.

Refrain:
O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
O land where prophets trod;
O Galilee, sweet Galilee,
Where walked the Son of God.

2 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
Thy hills are sacred now;
Whose rocks did lend, on wearied nights
A pillow for His brow,
Or from whose crests, where cedars bend,
In silent twilight hour,
He stood enwrapped in prayerful mood,
Awaiting God-sealed power. [Refrain]

3 O Galilee, sweet Galilee!
We claim thee as our own;
Where first He came, whose mission was
To bind all flesh in one;
O native land, O covenant land,
Of earth’s most royal king!
We give thee mead of blessèd praise,
While we His glory sing. [Refrain]
