CHRIST OUR EXAMPLE IN SUFFERING




Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s power;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see,
watch with Him one bitter hour,
Turn not from His griefs away;
learn of Jesus Christ to pray.


See Him at the judgment hall,
beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of Christ to bear the cross.


Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete.
“It is finished!” hear Him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die.


Early hasten to the tomb
where they laid His breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom.
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes;
Saviour, teach us so to rise.


---Alternative verses---


See Him at the judgment hall,
beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of Christ to bear the cross.


Follow to the judgement hall;
view the Lord of life arraigned;
See him meekly bearing all,
Love to man his soul sustained:
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of him to bear the cross.


Follow to the judgment hall;
view the Lord of life arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs his soul sustained:
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
learn of him to bear the cross.


Early to the tomb repair
where they laid His breathless clay;
Angels kept their vigil there;.
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He seeks the skies;
Savior, teach us so to rise.


Calvary’s mournful mountain view,
There the Lord of glory see,
Made a sacrifice for you,
Dying on the accursed tree:
“It is finished,” hear him cry;
Trust in Christ, and learn to die.


To the rocky tomb repair,
Where they laid his breathless clay;
Angels kept their vigils there,
Who hath taken him away?
“Christ is risen,” he seek the skies;
Saviour, teach us so to rise.
