Stranger of Galilee
Now Playing: Do you know Him today as your Saviour ?
Topic: Gospel
In fancy I stood by the shore one day,
Of the beautiful murmuring sea;
I saw the great crowds as they thronged the way
Of the Stranger of Galilee;
I saw how the man that 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.

Chorus:

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

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 pierced feet
Of the Stranger of Galilee.

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.

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.

Chorus (4th verse only)

Oh, my friend, won't you Him for ever?
So gracious and tender is He!
Accept Him today as your Saviour,
This Stranger of Galilee.
