631 (C.M.) Thomas Haweis

Dark was the night, and cold the ground

On which the Lord was laid;

His sweat like drops of blood ran down —

In agony he prayed:

"Father, remove this bitter cup,

If such Thy sacred will;

If not, content to drink it up,

Thy pleasure I fulfill."

Go to the garden, sinner, see

Those precious drops that flow;

The heavy load He bore for thee;

For thee He lies so low.

Then learn of Him the cross to bear;

Thy Father's will obey;

And when temptations press thee near,

Awake to watch and pray.
