Song Description

As the story of Christ's agony in the Garden is told, Jesus prays to His father in Heaven that this cup may pass Him by... then accepts His father's will.

Story Behind the Song

The composer of this original and moving meditative song has blessed this musical resurrection.


One night in a garden, our dear Lord prayed
And wept tears of sorrow for mankind's mistakes
He suffered alone for His friends were asleep
For no one knew the pain that He'd meet

Oh, Father in Heaven
(My Father above)
Let this cup pass Me by
(Take this cup from Me)
Our dear Lord cried
(For My heart is breaking)
Still let it be
(Thy will be done)
As you would have it
(On heaven and earth)
Not as I

An angel came to strengthen Him
To calm and soothe His fears within
But sweat as drops of blood ran down
And fell beside Him on the ground REFRAIN

And so began Christ's final days
When through His passion, He would be raised
He'd fulfill the scriptures and die on the cross
To save the souls that would have been lost REFRAIN
