Gethsemane

by Melanie Hoffman


Jesus climbed the hill to the

garden still.

His steps were heavy and

slow.

Love and a prayer took Him

there

To the place only He could go.


[Chorus] Gethsemane.

Jesus loves me,

So, He went willingly to

Gethsemane.


He felt all that was sad,

wicked, or bad,

All the pain we would ever

know.

While His friends were asleep,

He fought to keep

His promise made long ago.


Gethsemane.

Jesus loves me,

So, He went willingly to

Gethsemane.


The hardest thing that ever

was done,

The greatest pain that ever

was known,

The biggest battle that ever

was won—

This was done by Jesus!

The fight was won by Jesus!


Gethsemane.

Jesus loves me,

So, He gave His gift to me in

Gethsemane.


Gethsemane. 

Jesus loves me,

So, He gives His gift to me

from 

Gethsemane.

The Miracle

By Shawna Belt Edwards


For God so loved the world

That He gave His only Begotten

Son

That whosoever believeth in him

shall not perish

But have everlasting life

Jesus walked upon the water

He stilled the storm and calmed

the angry sea

With His hands He healed the

leper

He made the lame to walk, the

blind to see

He fed a thousand people with a

loaf or two of bread

And when the ruler's daughter

died

He raised her from the dead


[Chorus] Jesus is a God of

miracles

Nothing is at all impossible to

Him

But I know this

Of all His miracles, the most

incredible must be

The miracle that rescues me


Jesus bled and died to save me

A price that I could never pay

alone

When He rose again, He gave me

The greatest gift the world has

ever known

Yes, I can be forgiven every time

that I repent

And someday He will lift me up

to live with Him again


[Chorus]


I know He will walk beside me

And heal my wounds and calm

my troubled heart

Always there to bless and guide

me

My psalm at night, my bright

and morning star

His love and grace will never

end; Each day they start anew

My name is graven on His

hands

And yours is, too


[Chorus]

Day of Tears

By Kenneth Cope


A crown of thorns, a cross to

bear

And sorrowing friends,

following near.

Yet,

He speaks through his grief,

“Weep not for m.”

But how can we hold back

these tears?


Yom tzar, day of sorrow

Yom dmaot, day of tears

Day of tears


The tearing flesh, the

trembling nerves

Some now bow in jest, and

mock his thirst

and still from His lips,

“Father, forgive.”

How could they slay their

Lord?


Yom tzar, day of sorrow

Yom dmaot, day of tears

Day of tears


Now asleep, rest in peace,

Jesus, Lord.

With love we come to wash

away where hate hath

marred.

But can it be, now we see no

grave can hold Thee.

Death has an end, Thou lives

again.


Yom simcha, day of

gladness

Yom dmaot, day of tears

Yom peley, day of wonder

Yom dmaot (simcha), day of

tears


Tears of joy

Joy


Tears of joy

This Is the Christ

Song by The Tabernacle

Choir at Temple Square


They heard His voice, a

voice so mild

It pierced them through and

made their souls to quake

They saw Him come, a man

in white

The Savior who had suffered

for their sake.


They felt the wounds in

hands and side

And each could testify; This

is the Christ


This is the Christ, the holy

Son of God

Our Savior, Lord, Redeemer

of mankind

This is the Christ, the healer

of our souls

Who ransomed us with love

divine


I read His words, the words

He prayed

While bearing sorrow in

Gethsemane

I feel His love, the price He

paid

How many drops of blood

were spilled for me?


With saints of old in joyful

cry

I too can testify; This is the

Christ


This is the Christ, the holy

Son of God

Our Savior, Lord, Redeemer

of mankind

This is the Christ, the healer

of our souls

Who ransomed us with

purest love divine!


Who ransomed us with

purest love divine

Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

Matthew 22:36-40



This Easter season, we invite you to ponder the Savior’s atoning sacrifice and glorious Resurrection, which bless all of us.... 

We testify that Jesus Christ lives! “He is risen” (Matthew 28:6).

 Because of Him, we can be guided and strengthened as we bear the burdens we face in mortality.

 Through our faith in the Savior’s atoning sacrifice, the bonds of sin cannot hold us

 and the trials that we experience in life will have no lasting power over us.

 “The sting of death is swallowed up in Christ” (Mosiah 16:8).
