Lest I forget Gethsemane

Redemption Hymnal no. 165

Jenny Evelyn Mussey             Wm J Kirkpatrick
5 verses

King of my life, I crown Thee now
Thine shall the glory be
Lest I forget Thy thorn-crown’d brow
Lead me to Calvary

Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Thine agony
Lest I forget Thy love for me
Lead me to Calvary

Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid
Tenderly mourn’d and wept
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept

Let me, like Mary, thro’ the gloom
Come with a gift to Thee
Show to me now the empty tomb
Lead me to Calvary

May I be willing, Lord, to bear
Daily my cross for Thee
Even Thy cup of grief to share
Thou hast borne all for me

Fill me, O Lord, with Thy desire
For all who know not Thee
Then touch my lips with holy fire
To speak of Calvary
