The rivers of Babylon flow, and fall, and carry
away... Jesus is alone on earth, not merely with no
one to feel and share His agony, but with no one
even to know of it. Heaven and He are the only ones
Jesus is in a garden, not of delight, like the first
Adam, who fell and took with him all
mankind, but of agony, where He has saved
Himself and all mankind
He suffers this anguish and abandonment in the
horror of the night.
Jesus will be in agony until the end of the world.
There must be no resting in the meantime...
