Gethsemane

On my knees, I plead
Your angel strengthens me
The bitter taste of wrath must come
So You can roll away the stone
My sorrow is unto to death
My soul crushed no broken bones

I plead
Until I bleed
Let this cup pass from my lips
Yet not my will but thine be done
My sorrow is unto death
Ohh Abba, Abba, here they come….

DRAMATIC SOLO/BRIDGE

Betrayed
With a kiss
I will drink the entire cup
and taste the bitter taste of sin
But from sorrow will come new life so
Most Holy God thy will be done
