1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Early hasten to the tomb where they laid His breathless clay.
All is solitude and gloom; Who hath taken Him away? Christ is risen!
He meets our eyes. Savior, teach us so to rise.
