272. Go to Dark Gethsemane

1 Go to dark Gethsemane,
you 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 the gall!
O the pangs his soul 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 that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete:
“It is finished!” hear him cry;
learn of Jesus Christ to die.
