Bleeding, Jesus anguished in the garden that day
No one understood what was coming or what He faced
Already agonizing over the prospect of becoming sin
It was a matter of love, it was a matter of when

Rocking and shaking knowing the cross was so close
Through the bloody sweat in His eyes He beheld a rose
He envisioned the Roman Soldiers crushing his brow
It was a matter of love, it was a matter of how

Jesus foresaw the scourging and hate-raised fists
Soon Judas would show up with his betraying kiss
Jesus interceded in prayer for every lost soul
It was a matter of love, it was a matter of woe

Finally Jesus submitted to the perfect will of God
He whispered, "Not my will but yours be done"

It was a matter of love, it was a matter of when
It was a matter of love, how can you resist?

I really liked this! I think it would make a great song. You captured the atmosphere of the garden with eloquence. Well done!
