225. Go to Dark Gethsemane

1 Go to dark Gethsemane, you 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 judgment hall; view the Lord of life arraigned.
O the wormwood and the gall! O the pangs his soul 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 that miracle of time, God’s own sacrifice complete:
“It is finished!” hear him cry; learn of Jesus Christ to die.
