  • Verse 1
    To see the King of heaven fall
    In anguish to His knees
    The Light and Hope of all the world
    Now overwhelmed with grief
    What nameless horrors must He see
    To cry out in the garden
    Oh take this cup away from Me
    Yet not My will but Yours
    Yet not My will but Yours

    Verse 2
    To know each friend will fall away
    And heaven's voice be still
    For hell to have its vengeful day
    Upon Golgotha's hill
    No words describe the Saviour's plight
    To be by God forsaken
    Till wrath and love are satisfied
    And every sin is paid
    And every sin is paid

    Verse 3
    What took Him to this wretched place
    What kept Him on this road
    His love for Adam's cursed race
    For every broken soul
    No sin too slight to overlook
    No crime too great to carry
    All mingled in this poisoned cup
    And yet He drank it all
    The Saviour drank it all
    The Saviour drank it all
