1.  Thou who taught the thronging people

By blue Galilee;

Speak to us, thy erring children,

Teach us purity.

2.  Thou whose touch could heal the leper,

Make the blind to see;

Touch our hearts and turn the sinning

Into purity.

3.  Thou whose word could still the tempest,

Calm the raging sea;

Hush the storm of human passion,

Give us purity.

4.  Thou who sinless met the tempter;

Grant, O Christ, that we

May o’er come the bent to evil

By thy purity.
