Go to dark Gethsemane, ye that feel the tempters power

1. GO to dark Gethsemane,
Ye  that feel the tempter's power;
Your  Redeemer's conflict see;
Watch with Him one bitter hour;
Turn not from His griefs away:
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

2. 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 Him to bear the cross.

3.Calvary'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.

4.Early to the tomb repair
Where they laid His breathless clay:
Angels kept yielr vigils there;
Who hath taken Him away?
Christ is risen!He seeks the skies;
Saviour, teach us so to rise.
