GETHSAMENE




íTis midnight, and on Oliveís brow
The star is dimmed that lately shone;
íTis midnight, in the garden now
The suffering Saviour prays alone.


íTis midnight, and from all removed
Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears
Eíen the disciple whom He loved
Heeds not his Masterís grief and tears.


íTis midnight, and for othersí guilt
The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood;
Yet He Who hath in anguish knelt
Is not forsaken by His God.


íTis midnight, from the heavenly plains
Is borne the song that angels know;
Unheard by mortals are the strains
That sweetly soothe the Saviourís woe.


---Alternative verses---


íTis midnight, from ether plains
Is borne the song that angels know;
Unheard by mortals are the strains
That sweetly soothe the Saviourís woe.
