'Nocturne' Georges Rouault


‘Tis Midnight, and On Olive’s Brow

Benedict versionmp3 | leadsheet

1 ‘Tis midnight; and on Olive’s brow
The star is dimmed that lately shown:
‘Tis midnight; in the garden now,
The suffering Savior prays alone.

2 ‘Tis midnight; and, from all removed
Emmanuel wrestles lone with fears:
E’en the disciple that He loved
Heeds not his Master’s grief and tears.

Refrain or Bridge:
All alone for me he cried
All alone for me he died
‘Tis midnight, the savior prays alone.

3 ‘Tis midnight; and, for others’ guilt,
The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood:
Yet He that hath in anguish knelt
Is not forsaken by His God.

4 ‘Tis midnight; and from heavenly plains
Is borne the song that angels know:
Unheard by mortals are the strains
That sweetly soothe the Savior’s woe.

words: William Tappan, 1822, add. by Laura Bradham
music: Laura Bradham and Bruce Benedict, 2007
