Description

Unison choir, oboe, violin or flute, harp/piano/handbells (one of these).  Text by the Carol McClure.  Modal, folksong-like, and plaintive.

To the garden went Jesus to pray,
Along with his disciples at the end of the day.
"My soul is full of sorrow," his friends heard him say,
"While I pray in the garden, I want you to watch and to pray."

"Watch and pray, to guard yourselves from sin.
Watch and pray, until I return again."

May we ever follow Jesus, even when we're alone,
Always watching, always praying, knowing we are God's own.
Even when we're full of sorrow, we can hear his voice say,
"I am with you in the darkness; I want you to watch and pray."

"Watch and pray, to guard yourselves from sin.
Watch and pray, until I return again."
