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.
