O'er the Dark Wave of Galilee

Author: William Russell Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #4785 Meter: 8.8.8.8 Lyrics: 1. O’er the dark wave of Galilee The gloom of twilight gathers fast, And on the waters drearily Descends the fitful evening blast. 2. The weary bird hath left the air And sunk into his sheltered nest; The wandering beast has sought his lair And laid him down to welcome rest. 3. Still near the lake with weary tread Lingers a form of human kind; And on His lone unsheltered head Flows the chill night damp of the wind. 4. Why seeks He not a home of rest? Why seeks He not a pillowed bed? Beasts have their dens, the bird its nest; He hath not where to lay His head. 5. Such was the lot He freely chose To bless, to save the human race; And through His poverty there flows A rich full stream of heavenly grace. Languages: English Tune Title: GALILEE (Holborn)

William Russell

1798 - 1873 Author of "O'er the Dark Wave of Galilee" in The Cyber Hymnal Russell, William, was born in Glasgow in 1798, and educated at the University of Glasgow. Removing from Scotland to America, he was at Savannah in 1817, and subsequently at other places in the United States. He was an active promoter of education, teachers' associations, and kindred objects, and did much to further the cause of education in the States. He was originally a Baptist, but did not hold to close communion. He died at Lancaster, Massachusetts, Aug. 16, 1873. His hymn, "O'er the dark wave of Galilee" (Christ in Solitude), begins with st. iii. of a poem written by him at the request of Dr. Ware, editor of the Unitarian Christian Examiner, and printed therein in 1826. [Rev. F. M. Bird, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
