Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: One man in his sorrow, slept; One Man knelt to pray, and wept. Peter, weakened, needing prayer; Jesus strengthened, in God’s care. Alleluia!
Verse 2: One man slept and was chastised; One Man suffered, agonized. One denied he knew His name; One professed, and now He reigns. Alleluia!
Verse 3: One asserted his own will; One in meekness said, “Thy will.” Bitterly, did Peter cry, as the Son was glorified. Alleluia!
