Back to Galilee

  • 1. Back to Galilee, back to our old hometown,
    Back where we lived before, where old friends are found;
    Back where it all began, seems just like yesterday,
    Back where the angel came, I heard him say:

    Chorus: Oh, do not be afraid, you are a favored one;
    And you shall be with Child when the Spirit comes.
    Oh, how my heart rejoiced here in this very place,
    That I should bear Your son; I praise his name.

    2. Here in Galilee, here's where we'll raise His Son,
    Here's where He'll laugh and play, yes, here's where He'll run.
    Right here in Galilee, here's where His Son will grow,
    Here where it all began, will be His home.

    Chorus: I lift my voice in praise, I magnify Your name,
    My heart can only say I love You, Lord;
    Ill live my whole life through, my life shall count for You
    I lift my voice in praise, I love You, Lord.

    3. Back to Galilee, back to our old hometown,
    Back where it all began, where His love abounds;
    I sense it in His Son, I see it in His face,
    Right here in Nazareth, this holy place.

    Chorus: I lift my voice in praise, I magnify Your name,
    My heart can only say I love You, Lord;
    Ill live my whole life through, my life shall count for You
    I lift my voice in praise, I love You, Lord.
