Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: When my love to Christ grows weak, When for deeper faith I seek, Then in tho’t I go to thee, Garden of Gethsemane.
Verse 2: There I walk amid the shades While the ling’ring twilight fades, See that suff’ring, friendless One, Weeping, praying there alone.
Verse 3: When my love for man grows weak, When for stronger faith I seek, Hill of Calvary I go To thy scenes of fear and woe.
Verse 4: There behold His agony, Suffered on the bitter tree; See His anguish, see His faith, Love triumphant still in death.
Verse 5: Then to life I turn again, Learning all the worth of pain, Learning all the might that lies In a full selfsacrifice.
