Gethsemane

Upon the night he was betrayed
While waiting in Gethsemane
With fervent cries and tears he prayed
“Lord take this cup away from me”

And though he may have feared his death
He never once said “I demand!”
But with the prayer of ev’ry breath:
“Father!” he said, “as you command!”

With reverence, he gave his will
Submitting to his Father’s plan:
To die upon the dark Skull Hill
He gladly went: Christ! God and Man!

Obedient, the cross he bore
That we might live forevermore.

~~

Based on Hebrews 5:7 and influenced by numerous passages from the Gospels.
