Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Weeping garden gently bow your leaves. Wilt beside the Savior as He grieves. Turn away the splendor of each flow’r. Hush the birds in this, His desp’rate hour.
Verse 2: Weeping garden look upon His face. See His anguish tempered by such grace. As He suffers, sweat pours out as blood. Let your sorrow drip from ev’ry bud.
Verse 3: Weeping garden how the twilight dims, Thru your canopy of twisted limbs. Traitors lurking near the garden’s bliss. Whisper of a cold betrayal kiss.
Verse 4: Weeping garden hear the pray’r He speaks. Not His will, but God’s, He humbly seeks. Greater love has never been displayed. Weep with Him who weeps beneath your shade!
