Good Friday

Go to dark Gethsemane, Ye that feel the tempter'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 adoring 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.
