’Tis Midnight; and on Olive’s Brow

  1. ’Tis midnight; and on Olive’s brow
    the star is dimmed that lately shone:
    ’tis midnight; in the garden now
    the suff’ring Savior prays alone.
  2. ’Tis midnight; and, from all removed,
    Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears:
    e’en the disciple that he loved
    heeds not his Master’s grief and tears.
  3. ’Tis midnight; and, for others’ guilt,
    the Man of Sorrows weeps in blood:
    yet he that hath in anguish knelt
    is not forsaken by his God.
  4. ’Tis midnight; from the heav’nly plains
    is borne the song that angels know:
    unheard by mortals are the strains
    that sweetly soothe the Savior’s woe.
