The Bitter Cup 497

Tune: Arranged by W. C. Givens, 1907
Lyrics: Thomas Haweis, 1792
Meter: Common Meter Double (8,6,8,6,8,6,8,6)
Father, remove this bitter cup,
If such Thy sacred will;
If not, content to drink it up,
Thy pleasure I fulfill.
Go to the garden, sinner, see
Those precious drops that flow,
The heavy load He bore for thee,
For thee He lies so low.
Givens arranged this song as a major companion to Rollo's Repentence on page 214.
