Whenever you know a desolate hour
And are steeped in misery,
Remember that Christ was lonely too,
In bleak Gethsemane.

Whenever you feel that all of the world
Has turned its back on you,
Remember that Christ knew what it was
To feel abandoned too.

Whenever you feel that your burden
Is greater than you can bear,
Remember that He too heartbreakingly knew
A moment of dark despair.

And remembering these things
Just bear in mind,
His victory was finally won
When He bowed His head and humbly said,
“Not My will, but Thine, be done!”
