Gethsemane

Hear, Father, hear my cry! darkness doth lower, oh, let the soul draw nigh man, in this hour. Calmly the feet may tread, where soul hath trod, over earth-woe and dread, in its pure God; In its unworldly love, bearing the cross, weighing the good, above all that is loss. Loss that is God to gain, cross that is crown; Truth taken up through pain, error laid down. Father, the "csup" to drink and when betrayed, at the cross I shrink oh, give me aid! Thus let the soul, man's sun, piercing the gloom, Shine when the day is done bright as noon. Words By: Mary M. B. Glover, 1843 Music & Arrangement by Michelle J. Gonzalez (C) 2013 Published by Sounds of Jubilee (C) 2013 "Her earliest use of the word "Gethsemane" in the collections of the Mary Baker Eddy Library appears in a poetic tribute to an older brother. This poem, entitled "Stanzas written when about leaving New England, at the Grave of Albert Baker, Esq." was written and published in 1843, two years after his death. The end of the third stanza of this poem echose the last stanze of "Gethsemane." It reads: "Tis nished," the Savior triumphantly cried, "Tis nished," the tears of Gethsemane dried, And divinity stooped to humanity's tomb With the light of his love to encompass its gloom. - Excerpt from the Christian Science Journal,Vol 129.
