Man From Galilee

Song Author Chris Holloway Lyrics by: Chris Holloway Performer: Connie Smith Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]It was Christmas Eve in a [C]little Texas [G]town
The [D7]snow was falling softly to the [G]ground
[C]Outside a little chapel stood a [G]man  
With [D7]sightless eyes a candle in his [G]hand

Oh[C] Lord if you're there help me [G]in  
I [D7]need to light a candle for a [G]friend
He [C]came from a land across the [G]sea  
They [D7]call Him the Man from [G]Galilee

And no one seemed to [C]hear his lonely [G]cry  
They[D7] laughed with Christmas cheer and walked on [G]by  
[C]Inside they watched a clock upon the [G]wall
Put[D7] silver in the box and left the [G]hall

Oh[C] Lord if you're there help me [G]in  
I [D7]need to light a candle for a [G]friend
He [C]came from a land across the [G]sea  
They [D7]call Him the Man from [G]Galilee

Soon the church was quiet in the night
And one-by-one the candles lost their light
In darkness now the old man knelt to pray
Fo[D7]rgive them Lord they must have lost their [G]way  

Oh[C] Lord if you're there hear my [G]prayer
Let[D7] the message of Your birthday fill the [G]air  
Let [C]the lesson of your life help us [G]see  
That [D7]Christmas is the Man from [G]Galilee

Oh[C] Lord if you're there help me [G]in  
I [D7]need to light a candle for a [G]friend
He [C]came from a land across the [G]sea  
They [D7]call Him the Man from [G]Galilee

It was Christmas Eve in a little Texas town
The snow was falling softly to the ground
Outside a little chapel stood a man
With sightless eyes a candle in his hand

Oh Lord if you're there help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
He came from a land across the sea
They call Him the Man from Galilee

And no one seemed to hear his lonely cry
They laughed with Christmas cheer and walked on by
Inside they watched a clock upon the wall
Put silver in the box and left the hall

Oh Lord if you're there help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
He came from a land across the sea
They call Him the Man from Galilee

Soon the church was quiet in the night
And one-by-one the candles lost their light
In darkness now the old man knelt to pray
Forgive them Lord they must have lost their way

Oh Lord if you're there hear my prayer
Let the message of Your birthday fill the air
Let the lesson of your life help us see
That Christmas is the Man from Galilee

Oh Lord if you're there help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
He came from a land across the sea
They call Him the Man from Galilee
