Mid the Stillness of the Night


Mid the Stillness of the Night

Music from the Ensign

1. ’Mid the stillness of the night,
Kneeling in Gethsemane,
Love unmeasured fought our fight
And claimed our victory.
Love unmeasured fought our fight
And claimed our victory.

2. His the anguish of our grief,
His the pain of countless years,
Ours the contrite heart’s relief
Thus born of blood and tears.
Ours the contrite heart’s relief
Thus born of blood and tears.

3. ’Neath the burden of a cross,
’Neath the weight of all our debt,
Calv’ry’s way He walked for us,
And ne’er shall we forget.
Calv’ry’s way He walked for us,
And ne’er shall we forget.

4. Jesus, Lord, unfailing friend,
Thou who lovest ceaselessly,
Thou who givest life to men,
We do remember Thee.
Thou who givest life to men,
We do remember Thee.
