151. Go to dark Gethsemane

Six 7's

Petra:

Richard Redhead, 1853

James Montgomery, 1825

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.

Follow to the judgment hall;

View the Lord of life arraigned;

O the wormwood and the gall!

O the pangs his soul sustained!

Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;

Learn of him to bear the cross.

Calvary's mournful mountain climb;

There, adoring at his feet,

Mark that miracle of time,

God's own sacrifice complete;

“It is finished!” hear him cry;

Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
