Hymn/Song Information

GETHSEMANE AND CALVARY




Prostrate on the ground, behold him,
He who is the Lord of all;
Fixed the planets in their orbits,
Made this vast terrestrial ball;
See him, sinners,
Drink the wormwood and the gall.


View the drops of sweat descending,
Hear his groans and plaintive sighs;
See, he pours his tears and prayers,
Overwhelmed in agonies:
Then to save us,
Lo, he suffers, bleeds and dies.


He by wicked hands and cruel,
Is transfixed upon the tree;
May that tree of death to Jesus,
Be a tree of life to me:
From destruction,
Set a mourning captive free.


Let me hear his voice but call me,
In sweet strains of heavenly love;
Tell me that for me he suffered,
This would all my griefs remove;
Fill with transport,
Raise my strains like those above.
