Representative Text

1 With joy I am telling the story I love,
Of Jesus and blue Galilee,
For He left His mansion in glory above,
To teach by that beautiful sea.

O beautiful sea, O blue Galilee!
My glad heart sings praise unto thee,
As I tread the blest way to the bright realms of day
Thy story grows sweeter to me.

2 Thy blue peaceful waters are sparkling with life,
So grand ‘neath the orient sky;
Thy bright waves are swelling with melody rife,
As Christ telleth news from on high. [Chorus]

3 Thy shore that is sunlit and wondrously blest
So brilliant with splendor doth shine,
As Jesus is healing the sick and distressed
By marvelous power divine. [Chorus]

4 O precious are memories golden and sweet
That hover around thy fair shore;
Thor’ ages those dear words their message repeat
And giveth me life evermore. [Chorus]
