Hymn/Song Information

Jesus while He dwelt below As divine




Jesus, while he dwelt below,
As divine historians say,
To a place would often go,
Near to Kedron’s brook that lay:
In this place he loved to be,
And ‘t was named Gethsemane.


‘T was a garden, as we read,
At the foot of Olivet,
Love and proper to be made
The Redeemer’s lone retreat:
When from noise he would be free,
Then he sought Gethsemane.


Thither, by their master brought,
His disciples likewise came;
There the heavenly likewise came;
Often set their hearts on flame:
Therefore they, as well as he,
Visited Gethsemane.


Oft conversing here they sat;
Or might join with Christ in prayer;
O, what blest devotion that,
When the Lord himself is there!
All things there did so agree
To endear Gethsemane.


Full of love to man’s lost race,
On the conflict much he thought;
This he knew the destined place,
And he loved the sacred spot:
Therefore Jesus chose to be
Often in Gethsemane.
