Hymn/Song Information

Jesus in the olive grove Waiting for a




Jesus in the olive grove,
Waiting for a traitor’s kiss,
Rises free from bitterness.


As he wakes his comrades up,
Torches flicker in the glen;
Shadows turn to marching men.


In that dawn of blows and lies
Church and State conspire to kill,
Hang three rebels on a hill.


Innocent and guilty drown
In a flood of blood and sweat,
How much darker can it be?


How much darker must it be
For a God to see and care
That we perish in despair?


It is God himself who dies!
God in man shall set us free:
God as Man—and only he.


Let him claim us as his own;
We will serve as best we can
Such a God and such a Man!
