Strong, Righteous Man of Galilee

Full Text

1 Strong, righteous Man of Galilee,
Robed with thy peace we follow thee:
In temple court, thy cleansing rod.
On Pharisees, the scorn of God.
Robed with thy peace we follow thee,
Strong, righteous Man of Galilee.

2 Firm, peaceful Man of Galilee,
Girt with thy strength we follow thee:
Not to revenge, but heal and pray,
To turn the cheek and tribute pay:
Girt with thy strength we follow thee,
Firm, peaceful Man of Galilee.

3 Calm, suff'ring Man of Galilee,
Clad in thy grace we follow thee:
Love at the well, share Martha’s loss,
Forgive the nails, and take the cross.
Clad in thy grace we follow thee,
Calm, suff'ring Man of Galilee.

4 God’s peaceful Man of Galilee,
Love’s triumph, we shall follow thee:
To crumble every bound'ry wall,
Build highways to the hearts of all.
Love’s triumph we shall follow thee,
God’s peaceful Man of Galilee.

Amen.
