190. Go to Dark Gethsemane

1 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.

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

3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb;
there, adoring at his feet,
mark the miracle of time --
God's own sacrifice complete.
"It is finished!" hear him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die.
