In the Land where Jesus walked

Heaven-sent, a stranger came

Angel Gabriel his name

Mary gave her humble yes

Transforming God’s Word into flesh

This happened in Nazareth

Nazareth in Zebulun

This happened in Nazareth

In the land where Jesus walked


Winter’s night, a teenage birth

Cause of joy for all the earth

Angel chorus sang of peace

To shepherds who smelt of their sheep

This happened in Bethlehem

Bethlehem, King David’s town

This happened in Bethlehem

In the land where Jesus walked

In the Jordan, Jesus went

Never needing to repent

Then he heard his Father tell

Beloved Son, you please me well

This happened in Bethany

Bethany Beyond the Jordan

This happened in Bethany

In the land where Jesus walked

Wedding guests, but no more wine

Though it was not yet his time

When his mother took a hand

He made the best wine in the land

This happened in Cana

Cana of Galilee

This happened in Cana

In the land where Jesus walked

Sick made well, the blind to see

Teaching with authority

He called fishers from the sea

And said they would catch you and me

This happened beside the lake

Beside the lake of Galilee

This happened beside the lake

In the land where Jesus walked

Beaten, mocked, unfairly tried

Jesus cruelly crucified

When he rose on Easter morn

The whole world in him was reborn

This happened in Jerusalem

Jerusalem, the holy city

This happened in Jerusalem

In the land where Jesus walked
