Lyrics

Of all the seas of earth most blest,
Whose storm-beat shores seek often for sweet rest,
It must be thou, blue Galilee,
For in His word
We find He spoke to thee.

Refrain

Roll on, roll on, O Galilee,
Roll on, roll on in peace;
For once this Savior calmed thy shore
To prove His wondrous power on earth to save.

Upon thy waves once Jesus came,
The wildest storm, He spoke, His voice did tame,
And made the breast a calm repose,
Today all thro’
This world the story goes.

Refrain

Upon thy waves, inspiring waves,
Once walked this Christ the lost of earth to save;
Roll on in peace, sweet Galilee,
Where walked this Christ
Who spoke and calmed thy waves.

Refrain

The Christ who walked upon thy shores
Now rules and reigns in Heav’n for evermore;
Now as some lifeboat rides thy waves,
We shout and sing
How much like Christ to save.
