    Verse 1
    Dark was the night and cold the ground
    Where Jesus Christ knelt down
    His sweat was like great drops of blood
    In deep prevailing prayers

    Verse 2
    ''Father, let this cup pass from me''
    Thy will be done not mine
    If it be not so, I will drink
    Thy will be done, not mine

    Verse 3
    Sinner, go see Him in the court
    Stained with His holy blood
    He bore the heavy load for you
    In deep humility

    Verse 4
    Do, learn to bear the cross of shame
    Do the Father's good will
    Then when temptation's very close
    Wake up and watch and pray
