Gethsemane Lyrics

Artist: Nightwish
Album: Oceanborn

Toll no bell for me Father
But let this cup of suffering pass from me
Send me no shepherd to heal my world
But the Angel - the dream foretold
Prayed more than thrice for You to see
The wolf of loneliness in me
...not my own will but Yours be done...

You wake up where's the tomb?
Will Easter come, enter my room?
The Lord weeps with me
But my tears fall for you

Another Beauty
Loved by a Beast
Another tale of infinite dreams
Your eyes they were my paradise
Your smile made my sun rise

Forgive me for I don't know what I gain
Alone in this garden of pain
Enchantment has but one truth:
I weep to have what I fear to lose

You wake up where's the tomb?
Will Easter come, enter my room?
The Lord weeps with me
But my tears fall for you

"I knew you never before
I see you never more
But the love the pain the hope O beautiful one
Have made you mine 'till all my years are done"

Without you
The poetry within me is dead

by Saint Flynn McMillan on 10/26/2008 7:23am
This has to be the best song they have ever done, it's genius and utter perfection.

I do agree that the band has slipped since Tarja's absence but i hope Nightwish in the near future will redeem themselves... i hope.

by Aira on 1/27/2009 9:08pm
I agree. Nightwish is fantastic! (even without Tarja)
Does anyone know what these lyrics actually mean? Obviously, they're about Jesus and such, but...
by Katrien on 2/6/2009 8:33am
I think it's about just a man who is in so much pain, who is desperate. And his faith in God is slipping away(Forgive me for I don't know what I gain
Alone in this garden of pain). He wants God to take away his pain, he thinks he cannot do anything about it himself. The song basically says: I already prayed three times, mylord, why isn't my pain gone. I don't know what I gain in still believing in You. Don't give me another story about Jesus, give me the Angel, give me change.

Having only discovered Nightwish recently, every time I hear another song, its like been given another gift.

Sleeping Sun is my current favourite.

Why try to interpret the uninterpretaable? If Tuomas wanted us the know the meanings , he would have written about it.

Every song ever written can be interpretted in so many different ways to suit indviduals..

So be it.. Tuomas, honey, never lose the faith.

This song is a conversation between God and Jesus taking place in the "Gothic Sanctuary" or "Gethsemane" (The two titles) which is the garden where Jesus resided when he got the Judas kiss.

So this story is about Jesus being more human than described in the religious texts. And the song is SO well composed. It's just perfect!
by Natalia m/ on 2/26/2009 8:08am
Nightwish was one of the best bands when Tarja was vocalist...
by Necro on 5/17/2009 10:16pm
you're all clueless, dont you know what Gethsemane is?! the garden where Jesus spent his last night, praying with his disciples, before the crucifixion. Supposedly where the Apostles buried Virgin Mary.

I believe it is not so much beautiful as it is tragic. His sacrifice & devotion.
by Meryl on 8/1/2009 12:20pm
Nightwish the best band ever!!
Anette is good but Tarja is great,, I miss Tarja,,
by hadchitos on 4/27/2010 9:11am
hey friends is nightwish an anti-christ rock band?
by DarkPassionPlay on 6/11/2010 6:22am
Well, NW has always been the best band ever!They are wonderful even now with Anette.I adore them. And this song is...I have no words to describe it.
by Large Dick on 6/27/2010 10:30pm
Best song, best band. Anette sucks.
by jealvarez on 7/8/2010 10:53am
I agree with you Oscar, Nightwish isn't the same without Tarja, but this song is amazing!!!!

"I knew you never before
I see you never more
But the love the pain the hope O beautiful one
Have made you mine 'till all my years are done"
by Robinaaaa on 8/16/2010 7:10am
I think it kind of ties in with all the other songs that have stories, like maybe this is from the point of view of the ocean soul or the dead boy, both of whom appear to be really depressed (or dead or dying) in most of the songs.

Love it :')
by Abraxas on 9/1/2010 11:43am
Without that band the poetry within me is dead..
by ValeAngel on 10/28/2010 1:44pm
The fuck? Have you listened to Poet and the Pendulum, Oscar?
by Viviana on 12/12/2010 10:05pm
Lovely song.
by Nina on 4/15/2011 12:32pm
"Without you the poetry within me is dead"
I just love this song, NIGHTWISH FOREVER!
by vikrant on 5/10/2011 7:30am
the ultimate composition by Nightwish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No words to describe this song............
by Drakmanka on 5/12/2011 1:21am
I love Nightwish. There is always a hint of religious thought put into the songs, but its not blasfamous at all. Like Gethsemane, its talking about Jesus, I think, waiting in the garden for the Priest and Judas to come for him, while his Disiples keep falling asleep. So he's all alone. Its like he's singing to them, how he loves them, and how it pains him to have to leave them, even though he knows he will be ressurected later on.
by Jezebel on 7/9/2011 7:55pm
What a touching and beautiful song! Tarja's lovely voice makes it so magnificent, as it did all the songs. I hope Anette doesn't ruin this like she ruined all their songs :@ I Wish Nightwish would reconcile with Tarja so that the songs can be beautiful again, plus i'll buy their albums again if Tarja sings, i'm not wasting my money on that stupid cow Anette's voice!
We love you Tarja, F*ck you Anette!

Love all of Nightwish' songs. Musicians are fantastic. Tarja's voice was perfect for this group. Too bad it turned out the way it did. She and Tuomas started out as friends. Tuomas is a genius for getting this group started. Anette's voice is good, but more for pop music, not for Nightwish.
Jezebel, your disgusting reference to Anette was stupid and uncalled for.
