    Then cometh Jesus.....unto a place called Gethsemane
    Matthew 26:36

    That was my Lord who was praying for me

    While passing a garden I lingered to hear
    A voice faint not faltering
    From One who was there
    While pleading in anguish, the poor sinners part
    The voice of the mourner affected my heart

    So deep were His sorrows, So fervent His prayers
    That down o'er His bosom
    Rolled sweat, blood and tears
    I wept to behold HIm, I asked Him His name
    He answered tis Jesus from heaven I came

    I am thy Redeemer, for thee I must die
    The cup is most bitter
    But cannot pass by
    Thy sins like a mountain, are laid upon Me
    And all this deep anguish I suffer for thee

    I trembled with terror and loudly did cry
    Lord save a poor sinner!
    Oh save or I die
    He cast His eyes on me and whispered dearest live
    Thy sins which are many, I freely forgive

    How sweet was that moment, He bade me rejoice
    His smile, oh, how pleasant
    How cheering His voice
    I flew from the garden to shout it abroad
    I shouted Salvation! And Glory to God

    (A Powley pre 1922)

    He loved me and gave Himself for me (Galatians 2:20)

    Blessed be His glorious name forever (Psalm 72:19)
  2. I've been searching for the words of this hymn for some time, I'm so happy I finally did find it.
    I have loved this song for as long as I can remember.
    I hope I can print this page. thank you so very much
