Galilee of the Gentiles
God brought Christ to you
Raised Him there to save us
Religious there were few

Unstained by tradition
Working in the pagan’s midst
Feeling all the evil
That swirls in this world

Stainless through obedience
Sinless by His ways
Living close to the Father
Listening every day

Never was He distracted
Never was He confused
Accepting the rules I live by
He gave His life for use

Now I live in weakness
Bemoaning all of my lack
Yet all the things I’m missing
Do not stop me from His use

Ego is the problem
Pride is its source
Everyday I suffer
Is because I want my way

Surrender is the pathway
Obedience is our strength
Taking us from weakness
To rely on Jesus strength
