The man of Galilee

Representative Text

1 Who is this that loves the lowly with love that never fails?
Who is this so pure and holy whose grace for sin avails?
So pure and good is He,
His grace avails for me;
He’s the Man of shame and sorrow;—the Man of Galilee.

2 Who is this that calls the weary to come to Him and rest,
And dispels the sorrows dreary, in many a troubled breast?
So very kind is He,
His love encircles me;
He’s the Man of shame and sorrow;—the Man of Galilee.

3 Who is this that reigns in splendor, to whom the angels bow,
And to whom the mighty render their adoration now?
‘Tis He who died for me,
The Christ of Calvary;—
He’s the Man of shame and sorrow;—the Man of Galilee.
