875. Christ in Gethsemane

1 Beyond where Kedron’s waters flow,
So brightly and so free,
Behold the loving Savior go
To sad Gethsemane.

Refrain:
Go to Gethsemane,
Hear that mournful sound;
See the Savior weeping,
Weeping on the cold, damp ground.

2 His countenance is all divine,
His heav’nly bearing see!
Yet grief appears in every line
While in Gethsemane. [Refrain]

3 He bows beneath the sins of men,
Whilst they are filled with glee;
He cries to God and cries again
In sad Gethsemane. [Refrain]

4 He lifts His mournful eyes above,
And cries, “O Father may
This cup, this bitter cup remove!”
Oh, sad Gethsemane! [Refrain]

5 With gentle resignation still,
For thee, my soul, for thee,
He yielded to His Father’s will
In sad Gethsemane. [Refrain]
