Gethsemane was a wonderful place to stay
Olive trees for shelter
A quiet retreat from the chaotic city

They had eaten their evening meal together
The disciples didn’t know it was the “Last Supper”
Jesus led them to Gethsemane so he could pray

All of them slept
Long day, hot any number of excuses
Jesus prayed alone

Sweat drops of blood
A powerful prayer
Feeling my sin and yours

He knew what he faced
He dealt with our disgrace
Willingly he went to the cross
