The Hymnal 1982 171
Go to dark Gethsemane
- James Montgomery, 1771-1854
- Richard Redhead, 1820-1901
1. Go to dark Gethsemane, ye 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 gall! O the pangs his souls 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 the miracle of time, God's own sacrifice complete; “It is finished!” hear him cry; learn of Jesus Christ to die.
