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)
