Lord of Gethsemane, Lord of Golgotha,
As you faced the injustices and assaults of your final hours,
And even despair,
You asked only that your friends stay close as long as they could.
Your solemn request was a cry for solidarity.
My soul is sorrowful even to death.
Remain here and keep watch with me.
Through the ages, the Body of Christ is assaulted still
In the suffering of your people.
Help us keep faithful, drawing closer,
As in their cry, we again hear the plea you made
Resounding through the centuries and repeated anew.
Remain here and keep watch with me.
Remain here and keep watch.
Remain here and keep.
Remain here.
Here we are, Lord.
We are here.
Remain Here and Keep Watch
With Me
