1.   In a manger long ago I know it was really so,
A child was born to save us from our sins.
John saw him on the shore, the Lamb forevermore.
It was the Christ, the Man of Galilee.


Oh, I love that Man of Galilee
Who has done so very much for me.
He forgave me all my sins, put the love of God within.
Oh, I love that Man of Galilee.

2.   Nicodemus came by night to learn the way of right.
He asked the Son of God what he must do.
These words were said to him, "Ye must be born again
By the Spirit of the Man of Galilee."


3.   Like the apostle Paul of old, who liked to lost his soul
Fighting against the people who were right.
Like wise men from above, He heard these words of love,
"I am the Christ, the Man of Galilee."
