Mid the Sillness of the Night (DeFord)

Submitted Hymn Texts, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

‘Mid the stillness of the night,

Kneeling in Gethsemane,

Love unmeasured fought our fight

And claimed our victory.

 

His the anguish of our grief.

His the pain of countless years.

Ours the contrite heart’s relief

Thus born of blood and tears.

 

‘Neath the burden of a cross,

‘Neath the weight of all our debt,

Calvary’s way he walked for us.

And shall we then forget?

 

Jesus, Lord, unfailing Friend!

Thou who lovest ceaselessly,

Thou who givest life to men,

We do remember thee.
