My mammaw use to sing this song
Neath the old olive tree cried the saviour alone one day
not my will but thine be done cried the father's own son
as he knelt neath the old olive trees
does anyone have this song?

Hi Becky,

I think this is the one. Word by B.B. McKinney.

1:
'Neath the stars of the night
Walked the Savior of light,
In the garden of dew ladened breeze;
Where no light could be found,
Jesus knelt on the ground,
There He prayed 'neath the old olive trees.

Chorus:
'Neath the old olive trees,
'Neath the old olive trees,
Went the Savior alone on His knees:
"Not My will, Thine be done,"
cried the Father's own Son,
As He knelt 'neath the old olive trees.

2:
All the sin of the world
On the Savior was hurled,
As He knelt in the garden alone;
Hear His soul burdened plea,
Let this cup pass from Me,
"Even so, not My will, Thine be done."

3:
May my song ever be
Of the love proffered me,
By my Lord all alone on His knees;
Praise His wonderful name,
He who bore all my blame,
As He knelt 'neath the old olive trees.

God bless!
Steve

Thank's so much, this was my grandfather's favorite song. I've been looking for it everywhere.

Great to be able to find this. My sister and her brother who just died used to sing it as a duet when they were young. Thank you!
