Wake Up <br />

<br />
Jesus prayed in Gethsemane and bitter tears He wept, <br />
And what He prayed, He prayed alone while His disciples slept. <br />
So when He said, &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll never go and leave you all alone,&rdquo; <br />
He was showin&rsquo; them a brand new way from all they&rsquo;d ever known. <br />
<br />
Wake up, wake up. Keep that painful watch tonight, <br />
Wake up, wake up. Don&rsquo;t abandon Jesus twice, <br />
Christ said to love each other just the way that He loved us, <br />
So wake up , wake up and keep the watch tonight. <br />
Keep the watch tonight. <br />
<br />
We all know one who wants our prayers, who needs a friend tonight, <br />
But all our fears and weariness are calling us to flight. <br />
Well Jesus said, &ldquo;What&rsquo;s done to them is really done to me.&rdquo; <br />
Christ is crucified again today, when we see pain and flee. <br />
<br />
(Repeat chorus twice) Wake up! <br />
