IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

GETHSEMANE (I only want to say)

Scene: IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE


JESUS:
I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
for I don’t want to taste its poison,
Feel it burn me.
I have changed --
I’m not as sure as when we started

Then I was inspired,
now I’m sad and tired
Listen surely I’ve exceeded expectations;
Tried for three years, seems like thirty.
Could you ask as much from any other man?

But if I die
See the saga through and do the things you ask of me
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me; nail me to their tree
I’d wanna know, I’d wanna know my God
I’d wanna know, I’d wanna know my God
I’d wanna see, I’d wanna see my God
I’d wanna see, I’d wanna see my God
Why I should die;
would I be more noticed than I was ever before?
Would the things I’ve said and done matter any more?

I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to see I’d have to see my Lord
I’d have to see I’d have to see my Lord
If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord
I’d have to know I’d have to know my Lord

Why should I die?
Can you show me now that I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain.
Show me there’s a reason for your wanting me to die;
You’re far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why!

Alright!! I’ll die!!!
Just watch me die!!!!
See how, see how I die!!
Oh, just watch me die.



Then I was inspired,
But now I’m sad and tired
After all I’ve tried for three years,
seems like ninety.
Why then am I scared to finish
what I started,
what you started,
... I didn’t start it

God thy will is hard.
But you hold every card.
I will drink your cup of poison:
nail me to your cross and break me.
Bleed me, beat me,
kill me
... take me now before I change my mind.


JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
