Redeemed Hymn 154 – Dark Was the Night and Cold the Ground

“Tarry here and watch with me” -Matt. 26:38

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.


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.


3 Sinner, go see Him in the court

Stained with His holy blood

He bore the heavy load for you

In deep humility.


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.
