A Night At Gethsemane

Updated on April 17, 2011

Gethsemane


The night is getting deeper

It is just the night of Passover

There is something about this night

It seems this night is not like the other night.

After awhile he says,

“My soul is overwhelmed with sorrows to the point of death.”

Going a little farther he fell with his face to the ground.

He cries out in agony, seeing the cup he is about to drink

This cup of great sorrows, great pains and agonies,

Great distress and humiliation

This cup is just so much unbearable

No human strength can persevere such so great agony.

“My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.

Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Not only once, but thrice he pronounced such words.

But Heaven remained silent.

Surely he will drink this unbearable cup.

The Father wills him to go through this great agony.

It is the Father’s will to crush him.

To bring glory to man’s soul.

Yes it is God’s pleasure to crush the Christ

In order to deliver mankind from sin and doom

And give him a marvelous destiny.


A blessed season of lent to all of you. May this Lenten Season bring us to e deeper meditation of Christ’s sufferings and death.

      Thank you for publishing this powerful poem. I love it! I have been to Gethsemane. There is one olive tree still there today that is 2,000 years old. Quite an experience.

      Three times My Lord Jesus goes to His knees in prayer, pleading with Our Father not to have to endure the humiliation and shame and disgrace of having my sin, our sin heaped upon Himself. Three times He prays to our father all the time knowing, that it could not be. He must face the extreme sacrifice and humiliation and the pain of having Our Father turn his back to his only begotten son in utter shame and disgust for all the sins.

      voted up and beautiful! Well written. Thank God the story is not over at Calvary, but at the tomb on the 1st day of the week following where death was overcome with a victorious Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour. He is Risen...
