Jesus, the Christ

"Tis midnight and on Olive's brow the star is dimmed that lately shone:
'Tis midnight; in the garden now, the suffering Saviour prays alone.

'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."

William Tappan, 1794-1849 William Bradbury, 1816-1868
