I Recall Gethsemane


Don’t spare me trouble if it will bring me close to Thee.

Don’t spare me heartaches; You bore a broken heart for me.

Don’t spare me loneliness for I recall Gethsemane.

Don’t spare me anything that You endured for me.

 

Forgive me, Lord, I prayed in vain

That You would spare me grief and pain,

But now my blinded eyes can see

These things were best for me.

 

Don’t spare me fever if this is what is best for me.

Don’t spare me sickness if this will make me call on Thee.

Don’t spare me sorrowing for I recall Your agony.

Don’t spare me anything that You endured for me,

 

Don’t spare me anything that You endured for me.
