Learn of Christ

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.

See Him at the judgment hall, beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
See Him meekly bearing all; love to man His soul sustained;
Shun not suffering, shame or loss; learn of Christ 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.
