Gethsemene - The Olive Press

The Olive Press

City oil was pressed here
Jesus slept in a cave here
He had access to this garden

Heart of an olive needs to be crushed
To make oil

He sweat blood
His heart was broken
He set His face like flint
For the joy set before Him
The Joy of the Lord is my strength

Peter, James and John
Were with Him in the garden
Watch and pray
The hour has come

Peter the Zealot
Had a knife
Narrow stiletto knife
Not yet totally reformed
When challenged
Showed himself

Jesus set his face like flint
