|He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou wilt. ( Matt. 26:39)
|Who in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save Him from death. ( Heb. 5:7)
|Hark! what sounds of bitter weeping,
From yon lonesome garden sweep;
’Tis the Lord His vigil keeping,
Whilst His followers sink in sleep.
|He is speaking to His Father,
Tasting deep that bitter cup,
Yet He takes it, willing rather
For our sakes to drink it up.
