Representative Text

1 Of all the seas of earth most blest,
Whose storm-beat shores seek often for sweet rest,
It must be thou, blue Galilee,
For in His word we find He spoke to thee.

Roll on, roll on, O Galilee,
Roll on, roll on in peace;
For once this Savior calmed thy shore
To prove His wondrous power on earth to save.

2 Upon thy waves once Jesus came,
The wildest storm, He spoke, His voice did tame,
And made the breast a calm repose,
Today all thro’ this world the story goes. [Refrain]

3 Upon thy waves, inspiring waves,
Once walked this Christ the lost of earth to save;
Roll on in peace, sweet Galilee,
Where walked this Christ who spoke and calmed thy waves. [Refrain]

4 The Christ who walked upon thy shores
Now rules and reigns in Heav’n for evermore;
Now as some lifeboat rides thy waves,
We shout and sing how much like Christ to save. [Refrain]
