Go to dark Gethsemane,
ye that feel the tempter’s pow’r;
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 judgement-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 Christ 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.
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:
Savior, teach us so to rise.
