O Galilee O Sacred Sea

O Galilee, O sacred sea,
With hallowed thoughts we turn to thee,
And think of Him who walked thy shore,
And all our sins and sorrows bore.

O Galilee, fair Galilee,
Thy billows how we long to see,
For He who came our souls to save,
Hath walked upon thy rolling wave.

Thou Galilee, shalt ever be
Thro’ all the world a hallowed sea,
For He whose feet thy waters trod
Was Jesus, only Son of God. [Refrain]

Mad Galilee, wild stormy sea,
His voice brought peace, great peace to thee.
Our hearts He calms thus by His will;
He still is saying “peace be still. [Refrain]
