Hi Just Wondering

Here are the lyrics with the spoken narrative following

The most important battle the world has ever known
was fought in Gethsemane where knelt God’s suffering son
Although He was so divine, He felt things like a man
To face all Hell easily is more than anybody can
But in this man there was a love the world had never known
Angels could have borne Him up but He faced it all alone
The agony poured down His face but the battle would be won
With tortured eyes He looked on high and said Thy will be done
So hands he’d used to heal and bless were nailed to splintered wood
And people who’d hailed Him as King now mocked Him as they stood
Thorns pierced the head He’d often bowed to pray in love for them
His mighty heart was broken as our guilt was laid on Him
And all the weight of Satan’s hate was crushing out His breath
But willingly He took our place in punishment and death
Was it when He cried It’s finished that victory had come
Or had it really been when a suffering man had said Thy will be done
Thy will; Thy will be done

Taken from the scriptures
(Mark 14:32-36)
They went to a place called Gethsemane and Jesus said to his disciples, Sit here while I pray. He took Peter, James and John along with Him and began to be deeply distressed and troubled. My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. He said to them. Stay here and keep watch.
Going a little further, He fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from Him. Abba Father He said Everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will but what you will. (Luke 22:44)
And being in anguish, He prayed more earnestly and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground
