Hymn/Song Information

When my love to God grows weak




When my love to God grows weak,
When for deeper faith I seek,
Then in thought I go to thee,
Garden of Gethsemane.


There I walk amid the shades
While the lingering twilight fades
See that suffering, friendless One,
Weeping, praying there alone.


When my love for man grows weak,
When for stronger faith I seek,
Hill of Calvary, I go
To thy scenes of fear and woe.


There behold His agony,
Suffered on the bitter tree;
See His anguish, see His faith,
Love triumphant still in death.


Then to life I turn again,
Learning all the worth of pain,
Learning all the might that lies
In a full self sacrifice.


And I praise with firmer faith
Christ who vanquished pain and death;
And to Christ enthroned above
Raise my song of selfless love.


---Alternative verses---


When my love to Christ grows weak,
When for deeper faith I seek,
Then in thought I go to thee,
Garden of Gethsemane.
