Hal-low-ed Geth-sem-a-ne,

Once the Sa-viour knelt in thee,

And up-on the midnight air

Rose his voice in humble prayer;

Father, hear thy suff-ring Son,

Yet thy ho-ly will be done.

Hark! me thinks I hear him say,

Let this cup now pass a-way;

Sorrowful Gethsemane,

There the Saviour bowed for me;

Lord of all, behold he pleads;

Sinless, yet behold he bleeds;

All this fearful agony.

O my soul, he bears for thee;

Freely for thee there drinks up

To its dregs the bitter cup.

Triumphant Gethsemane!

Satan's power was crushed in thee;

For when Jesus humbly knelt

To the stroke man should have felt,

Man was rescued in that hour

From the yoke of Satan's power;

Rescued then, he hopes to rise

To the joys of paradise.
