First Line: What trees were in gethsemane
Last Line: In gardens, late at night.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ - Suffering & Sacrifice

What trees were in Gethsemane,
What flowers were there to scent,
When Christ for you, and Christ for me,
Into his garden went?

The fragrant cedar tree was there,
The lily pale and slim;
They saw his grief, they heard his prayer,
And wept their dews for him.

And that is why the cedars green
And why the lilies white
Do whisper of the Master's love
In gardens, late at night.
