Christian Worship Christ Our Example In Sufferings.
Go to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel temptation’s power,
Your Redeemer’s conflict see,
Watch with him one bitter hour.
Turn not from his griefs away,
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
Follow to the judgment-hall,
View the Lord of life arraigned:
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs his soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame or loss;
Learn of him to bear the cross.
Calvary’s mournful mountain climb;
There, admiring at his feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God’s own sacrifice complete:
It is finished, hear him cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid his breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom;
-Who has taken him away?
Christ is risen; he meets our eyes-
Saviour, teach us so to rise.
