Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 There is a place to Christians dear,
To Calv’ry’s hill ‘tis very near;
O suff’ring One, ‘twas more to Thee,
The garden of Gethsemane.

O spot divine, so dear to me,
Where Jesus bled in agony;
When burdens seem too great for thee,
Go, friend, to your Gethsemane.

2 When sorrow’s heaviest, friends may sleep,
Your aching heart the lone watch keep;
When morning brings too much for thee,
Your cup take to Gethsemane. [Refrain]

3 Then troubled heart, do not despair,
Tho’ dark the night, come here in pray’r;
For any task you’ll strengthen’d be
Thro’ pray’r in our Gethsemane. [Refrain]

4 For joy that is before you then,
Go to your cross, despise its shame;
In worlds unending you shall be
Like Jesus of Gethsemane. [Refrain]
