The Carpenter in Galilee

To “The Miller Of Dee” tune

By Lorraine J. Anderson .

There were three men a fishing once upon the Galilee sea

Simon Peter, And James And John, the sons of Zebedee

A carpenter came and asked for a boat

And preached for the people, did he.

And told the men, leave all behind and come and follow me.

He was the Son Of God he said, and miracles did they behold

The lepers healed, the blind could see, and the crowd fed fourfold

The carpenter gathered the men around him, and preached the  parables bold.

And told the men, come follow me, then his death he foretold.

To Jerusalem he went and Pilate he did see.

They said he was the King of Jews, then they hung him on the tree.

But in three days, he rose again, and our sins away took he.

Praise be to God and to the Spirit and to Jesus all three.

Sit and Talk With Jesus

By Lorraine J. Anderson

If you are down and in a bind

A comfort there you will find

A prayer will still focus your mind

When you talk with Jesus.

When times are tough and you are lost

Your life seems very tempest tossed.

Remember who paid the ultimate cost.

Sit and talk with Jesus.

When troubles seem to overwhelm

Remember who is at the helm,

He’ll remind you of the heavenly realm

The man whose name is Jesus.

He will stay with you all day

And the nighttime too

He will guide you on your way

He wants the best for you

If evil seems to be all around

And peace seems nowhere to be found

Remember who will wear the crown.

Bow before King Jesus
