Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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]
