The Stranger Of Galilee

Music and Lyrics: Lelia N. Morris

I’ve rendered three stanzas of this hymn. This hymn tells us of the mighty deeds that the Lord Jesus has performed.

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.

Refrain 1-3:
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.

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 from 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.

Refrain 4:
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.

    This hymn takes me to the shore of the Sea of Galilee and I can see Jesus my Lord walking, healing, talking with the crowd surrounded him. Sometimes I ask myself if I wanted to live around that time. It would be very sad that I probably would treat Him as just a stranger. Thanks to the Holy Spirit speaking through the Bible and opened my eyes to see Him as my dear Savior and Lord.
    Thank you for playing this wonderful hymn.

    I have an old record by F, Carlton Booth. He reversed the second and third stanzas and also, his last chorus says: and I felt I could love Him forever.. and concludes with No Longer a stranger to me.

    I lost my grandmother’s sheet music to this wonderful old song. I would love to get the sheet music. Carol
