Gethsemane

image

There is a place to which all must come
There its no one there for you
No one to watch and pray
The whole world looks away

I know You were there
Praying alone in the stillness that night
In the garden of despair
Drops of sweat like blood
And sorrowed onto death

Because you were there
You know all that we feel
We are frightened and dismayed
Not always knowing what is real

Save us we cry aloud
lost amid the rocks and trees
This troubled garden is all we see
In desperation we pray
for God’s love to find the way

Then in the perfect way of peace
And in the perfect way of love
The answer is made clear
By God’s only begotten Son
Not our will, but Yours, be done
