When Jesus Looked O’er Galilee

When Jesus looked o’er Galilee,

So blue and calm and fair,

Upon her bosom, could He see

A cross reflected there?


When sunrise dyed the lovely deeps,

And sparkled in His hair,

O did the light rays seem to say:

A crown of thorns He’ll wear?


When in the hush of eventide

Cool waters touched His feet,

Was it a hymn of Calvary’s road

He heard the waves repeat?


But when the winds triumphantly

Swept from the open plain,

The Master surely heard the song:

The Lord shall live again!
