Asleep

I ponder the vista, of Gethsemane

In the cool, eventide, of the day

There a solit'ry, grief-stricken, figure, I see

As He kneels in the garden, to pray

 

He offers up prayers, with strong crying and tears

As his blood-sweat falls down to the ground

Yet throughout his deep agony, heartache and fears

Not one sheep from his flock, can be found

 

He'd charged his disciples, to watch and to pray

Whilst in anguish, He laboured and wept

But they miserably failed, to his utter dismay

For in sorrow, they slumbered and slept

 

What, could you not watch here, with me, for one hour?

His voice seems to whisper my name

Though willing in spirit, my flesh lacks the power

I concede, to my uttermost shame



Like Peter of old, a deep love, I profess

And desire, to do as He asks

Yet each day, If I'm honest, I have to confess

That I fail in the simplest of tasks

 

 



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very beautiful, moving and thought provoking - the times we fall asleep instead of praying! I love the way you share your heart and the lovely words you use.
