Blue Galilee

“Blue Galilee,” New Era, Aug. 1980, 29

Blue Galilee

Bright sea,

whose sleepy depths

He more than knew,

whose raging heights

He overthrew,

where triumphantly He walked,

upon whom lovingly, He gazed—

I am like you.

He walks beside me like a friend,

just as His feet impressed the sand

along your breezy shore,

just as he stood and walked the waves

so far above your watery floor.

Great sea,

On wind-tossed Galilee,

my raging storms

He also stills.

Oh gentle sea,

blue Galilee,

my depths He knows,

my soul He fills.
