the chorus went like this:
so i leave my boats behind
leave them on familiar shores
set my heart upon the deep
follow you again my lord

anyone know the lyrics? or even the title?

Hi Guest,

I believe this hymn is called "Galilee Song". It goes something like this:

Deep within my heart I feel
Voices whispering to me;
Words that I can't understand
Meanings I must clearly hear.
Calling me to follow close,
Lest I leave myself behind!
Calling me to walk into
Evening shadows one more time.

Chorus
So I leave my boats behind!
Leave them on familiar shores!
Set my heart upon the deep.
Follow you again my Lord.

2.
In my memories I know
How you send familiar rains,
Falling gently on my days
Dancing patterns on my pains!
And I need to learn once more,
In the fortress of my mind:
To believe in falling rains
While I travel deserts dry.

Chorus

As I gaze into the night,
Down the future of my years,
I'm not sure I want to walk
Past horizons that I know.
But I feel my spirit called
Like a stirring deep within
Restless 'til I live again
Beyond the fears that close me in.

Chorus

Hope this helps!

Best,
Steve

Thank you, Steve,
I was humming the chorus all the way from the Galilee to Jerusalem
and just could not remember the words

We played this at my Dad's funeral when I was nine and it still makes me cry today and I am 22. It is such a beautiful song.
