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 judgment hall,
View the Lord of Life arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suff’ring, shame, or loss;
Learn of Him to bear the cross.
Calv’ry’s mournful mountain climb;
There, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete:
“It is finished!” 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 ris’n! He meets our eyes:
Savior, teach us so to rise.
