GOOD FRIDAY, by            
First Line: Come we unto an altar, kneel, and pray
Last Line: Give dreams of thy immortal paradise.
Subject(s): Good Friday; Holidays; Holy Week

Come we unto an altar, kneel, and pray,
Oft do we try to pierce life's somb'rous way;
Come we to claim the heritage of years,
Calm aching grief, extenuate our fears.
O God, Who sees and knows our every need,
Come now to our Gethsemane, we plead.
We who have passed within the garden's gate,
Know each must bear a burden soon or late;
Lift Thou our thought, our hopes beyond Earth's skies
Give dreams of Thy immortal Paradise.
