Gethsemane

Into a garden went my Lord

Author: Robert Harkness
Tune: [Into a garden went my Lord]
Published in 2 hymnals

Audio files: MIDI

Representative Text

1 Into a garden went my Lord,
Alone with God to be;
With His great plan in full accord,
In dark Gethsemane.

Refrain:
O how He suffered for His own
In dark Gethsemane;
Facing the issue all alone
In dark Gethsemane.

2 Lo! as He prays, on that fair brow
Great drops of blood I see;
See how He agonizes now,
In dark Gethsemane. [Refrain]

3 Crushed ‘neath the weight of sin until
He fain would be set free;
Knowing full well the Father’s will,
In dark Gethsemane. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
