A Man There Lived In Galilee : Lyrics
1. A man there lived in Galilee
like no one else before,
for he alone from first to last
our flesh unsullied wore;
a perfect life of perfect deeds
once to the world was shown,
that everyone might mark his steps
and in them place their own.
2. A man there died on Calvary,
above all others brave;
he gave to all, he saved and blessed,
himself he scorned to save;
no thought can gauge the weight of woe
on him, the sinless, laid;
we only know that with his death
our ransom price was paid.
3. A man there stands at God’s right hand,
divine, yet human still;
that brand, heroic, peerless soul
death sought in vain to kill.
All power is his; supreme he rules
all realms of time and space;
yet still our human cares and needs
find in his heart a place.
