1. 'Tis midnight, and on Olive's brow the star is dimmed that lately shone,
'Tis midnight; in the garden now, the suffering Savior prays alone.
2. 'Tis midnight, and from all removed, the Savior wrestles lone with fears;
E'en that disciple whom He loved heeds not his Master's grief and tears.
3. 'Tis midnight, and for others' guilt the Man of Sorrows weeps in blood;
Yet He that hath in anguish knelt is not forsaken by His God.
4. 'Tis midnight, and from heavenly plains is borne the song that angels know;
Unheard by mortals are the strains that sweetly soothe the Savior's woe.
