4159. The Man of Galilee

1. I am on a shining pathway,
A-down life’s shortening years,
And my heart hath known its sorrows,
Mine eyes have seen their tears;
But I saw those shadows flee,
And the shining light I see,
While I’m trusting in the merit,
Of the Man of Galilee.

2. My poor soul has had its conflicts
With mighty hosts of sin,
With the deadly foes without me,
And darker foes within;
But I saw those legions flee,
And my soul found victory,
When I trusted in the merit
Of the Man of Galilee.

3. I am coming near the city
My Savior’s hands have piled,
And I know my Father’s waiting
To welcome home His child;
For unworthy though I be,
He will find a place for me,
For He is the King of Glory,
The Man of Galilee.
