1 The Savior in Gethsemane
Bows low in bitter agony.
My conscience smites me, for I know
My sin, my sin constrained Him so.
Yea, all that weight of agony
The Son of God endured for me.
2 Dread tho't! My sin doth heavier lie
Than all this mighty earth and sky;
For Jesus, in His Father's name,
Bears up this universal frame;
And yet the Word of God falls low,
The while He bears sin's weight of woe.
3 Thus, Lord, Thou givest me Thy peace,
Sure comfort that an never cease;
Far greater that paid ransom's worth
To God than boundless heav'n and earth:
So by Thine agony I win
Eternal pardon for my sin.
