James Montgomery

Christ our Example in Suffering.

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 arraign'd;

O the wormwood and the gall!

O the pangs His soul sustain'd!

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 finish'd;"--hear the cry;

Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

Early hasten to the tomb,

Where they laid His breathless clay:

All is solitude and gloom;

Who hath taken Him away?

Christ is risen!--He meets our eyes.

Saviour, teach us so to rise.
