Stranger of Galilee

1. In fancy I stood by the shore, one day, Of the beautiful murm’ring sea;
I saw the great crowds as they thronged the way Of the Stranger of Galilee;
I saw how the man who was blind from birth, In a moment was made to see;
The lame was made whole by the matchless skill, Of the Stranger of Galilee.

And I felt I could love Him forever, So gracious and tender was He!
I claimed Him that day as my Savior, This Stranger of Galilee.

2. His look of compassion, His words of love, They shall never forgotten be;
When sin sick and helpless He saw me there, This Stranger of Galilee;
He showed me His hand and His riven side, And He whispered, “It was for thee!”
My burden fell off at the piercèd feet, Of the Stranger from Galilee.

3. I heard Him speak peace to the angry waves, Of that turbulent, raging sea;
And lo! at His word are the waters stilled, This Stranger of Galilee;
A peaceful, a quiet, and holy calm, Now and ever abides with me;
He holdeth my life in His mighty hands, This Stranger of Galilee.

4. Come ye who are driven, and tempest tossed, And His gracious salvation see;
He’ll quiet life’s storms with His “Peace, be still!” This Stranger of Galilee;
He bids me to go and the story tell— What He ever to you will be,
If only you let Him with you abide, This Stranger of Galilee.

4th verse Chorus:
Oh, my friend, won’t you love Him forever? So gracious and tender is He!
Accept Him today as your Savior, This Stranger of Galilee.
