VERSE 1:
Go to dark Gethsemane,
You who 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.

VERSE 2:
Follow to the judgment hall;
View the Lord of life arraigned;
See the worm-wood and the gall!
See the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suff'ring, shame, or loss;
Learn of Him to bear the cross.

VERSE 3:
Calv'ry's mournful mountain climb
There' adoring at His feet,
Mark the miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete:
"It is finished!" Hear the cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

VERSE 4:
Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid his breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom;
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is ris'n! He meets our eyes:
Savior, teach us so to rise.
