27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. 28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. 29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. 30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.(KJV)

In the Hour of Trial

1. In the hour of trial, 
Jesus, plead for me 
Lest by base denial 
I depart from Thee. 
When Thou see’st me waver, 
With a look recall 
Nor for fear or favor 
Suffer me to fall. 

2. With forbidden pleasures 
Should this vain world charm 
Or its tempting treasures 
Spread to work me harm, 
Bring to my remembrance 
Sad Gethsemane 
Or, in darker semblance, 
Cross-crowned Calvary. 

3. Should Thy mercy send me 
Sorrow, toil, and woe, 
Or should pain attend me 
On my path below, 
Grant that I may ever 
Cast my care on Thee. 

4. When my last hour cometh. 
Fraught with strife and pain, 
When my dust returneth 
To the dust again, 
On Thy truth relying, 
Through that mortal strife, 
Jesus, take me, dying, 
To eternal life.
