Description

Into the garden, Jesus has come, the Lord and disciples three.
Burdened with sorrows, Jesus implores, “Oh, stay and watch with me.”
One of His own has bargained with sin!
One of His own let Satan come in!
Although you are weary, Although the night long,
“Oh, could you not watch? One hour could you watch?
Oh, could you not watch with me?”

Bowing again, His face to the ground, He prays in agony.
“Father, this cup, please, take it away! Oh, let it pass from me!
Naught of my will, but Thine be done!”
Not of His will! For this He has come!
“Wake, awake! The hour is at hand.”
“Oh, could you not watch? One hour could you watch?
Oh, could you not watch with me?”

Judas, thou traitor, rending the night, Creator by kiss betrays.
King of all Kings, no army to fight! The Savior is led away.
Jesus alone, with enemies around!
Jesus alone, no friend to be found!
Lamb of God stands all alone!
“Oh, could you not watch? One hour could you watch?
Oh, could you not watch with me?”
