Redeemed Hymn 157 – ‘Tis Midnight; and on Olive’s Brow

“Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane” -Matt. 26:36

1 ‘Tis midnight; and on Olive’s brow

The star is dimmed that lately shone;

‘Tis midnight, in the garden now,

The suffering Saviour prays alone.


2 ‘Tis midnight; and from all removed,

The Saviour wrestles ‘lone with fears;

E’en that disciple whom He loved

Heeds not his Master’s grief and tears.


3 ‘Tis midnight; and for other’s 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 other plains

Is borne the song that angels know;

Unheard by mortals are the strains

That sweetly soothe the Saviour’s woe
