On the Sea of Galilee

 

Am [D]I a soldier [G]of the cross,

a [D]follower of the [A]lamb,

and [D]shall I fear to [G]own His cause,

or [D]blush to [A]speak His [D]name.

CH

On the [G]sea (the sea the sea) of Gali[D]lee (of Galilee)

my [A]Jesus is walking on the [D]sea.

On the [G]sea (the sea the sea) of Gali[D]lee (of Galilee)

my [A]Jesus is [A7]walking on the [D]sea.

 

Should I be carried to the skies,

on flowery beds of ease,

while others fought to win the prize

and sailed through bloody seas.    + CHORUS

 

There shall I bathe my weary soul,

in seas of heavenly rest,

and not a wave of trouble roll

across my peaceful breast.    + CHORUS
