1 Is it true that in the garden of Gethsemane
My Redeemer wept and struggled, wept in pray’r for me?
Drops of sweat as blood were falling, death seem’d drawing nigh;
Saviour, was it for the sake of sinners such as I?
Is it true, is it true,
Thou such love hast shown?
Come and make us, blessed Saviour, ever more Thine own!
Blessed Saviour, evermore Thine own!
2 Is it true that He the crown of piercing thorns did wear?
Is it true that up the mountain He the cross did bear,
And was crucified upon it, thus to ransom me?
O amazing love and mercy! Saviour, can it be? [Chorus]
3 Is it true that my Redeemer loves my spirit still,
And will fit me up a mansion, if I only will?
O my heart, make haste to serve Him, while on earth I dwell,
That in death my voice can whisper, whisper it is well! [Chorus]
