GETHSEMANE (MK 14:32-42)

Jesus sweated drops of blood
His pain for our sin
His agony complete
Christ knew what was ahead
He felt the loneliness we feel and yet without sin
Adam yielded to Satan
Jesus yielded to God

My life has been and is filled with sin
Even though I seek to grow
It’s always a struggle to do God’s will
Self is in the know; it shuns the surrendered path

Jesus labored long and hard that night
On Gethsemane Christ did what was right
He did the Father’s will
God in Christ fulfilled our need
Jesus would walk to Calvary
He would call on the Father for strength
Knowing he would be beaten beyond belief
Even when I was dead in sin
Christ had faith His work would win

Victory in Jesus
The battle won for you and me
His time at Gethsemane
Rang victory over Calvary
Thy will be done
Said the Son
And it was done
