Gethsemane

Detail from Gethsemane, by J. Kirk Richards

1. In a sacred garden place,

I was ransomed by Thy grace.

Pleading in Gethsemane,

Savior, Thou didst pray for me.

Savior, Thou didst pray for me.

Take this broken heart of mine;

Let my will be one with Thine.

Pleading in Gethsemane,

Savior, Thou didst pray for me.

Savior, Thou didst pray for me.

2. I have seen Thy wounded flesh,

Symbols of Thy willing gift.

Though for all, Thy suff’rings be,

Savior, Thou didst die for me.

Savior, Thou didst die for me.

Take this broken heart of mine;

Let my will be one with Thine.

Though for all, Thy suff’rings be,

Savior, Thou didst die for me.

Savior, Thou didst die for me.

3. With this cup pressed to my lips,

I will rev’rence, as I sip,

Body, broken, offered me.

I will witness now for Thee.

I will witness now for Thee.

Take this broken heart of mine;

Let my will be one with Thine.

May no more Thy suff’rings be:

Savior, I will live for Thee.

Savior, I will live for Thee.
