Gethsemane


Jesus, I contemplated what You said
when You claimed that it was done.
Did You know all that was still ahead,
and simply chose to be the obedient Son?
Then on the cross You repeated Your claim
just before You took Your final breath,
and You carried off all of our blame
before You conquered hell and death.

Only when You arose did we understand
what all it was that You had achieved,
when we looked upon Your nail-pierced hand
and considered the pardon that we’d received.
“It is done,” You said in complete obedience
and proved Your love for God and man.
May I follow Your example with expedience
and submit my own life to God’s grand plan.
