"Gethsemane" lyrics

Gethsemane

In the garden of Gethsemane
Jesus suffered there
His sweat became His blood they say
He spent the night in prayer

They whipped Him up the mountain
Made Him carry his cross
He died to save the sinner man
He died to save the lost

Who shall wear His garment
Divided in four parts?
Who shall wear the Savior's robe?
We shall all cast lots

Gambling over the Savior's clothes
Oh, what an awful shame
When Jesus was hanging on the cross
They thought it was just a game

I wonder how the solders felt
When the day turned black as night
Do you think they ran and hid
And trembled with their fright?

Who shall wear His garment
Divided in four parts?
Who shall wear the Savior's robe?
We shall all cast lots

Do you think that they felt sorry
For the wrong that they had done?
When they learned the Jew they crucified
Was God's own chosen son

My Savior was a humble man
Who did no wrong they say
Now we call Easter morning
When the angel rolled the stone away

Who shall wear His garment
Divided in four parts?
Who shall wear the Savior's robe?
We shall all cast lots
