At midnight in a garden
A man knelt down to pray;
The darkness gathered round him
The silence on him lay
And joy had turned to sorrow
And doubt must have its way,
When in a midnight garden
The Lord knelt down to pray.

At midnight in a garden,
Some friends were waiting near
To keep watch and to guard him
Be with him facing fear.
But promises are shallow,
And tiredness turned to sleep,
When in a midnight garden
The Lord was heard to weep.

Verses 3-5 follow
