This hymn was written in 1914 by Ben H. Price. I have not been available to trace the origin or history of this hymn. It is a moving hymn that speaks of the fact that the Savior had to face dark calvary all alone, to redeem us from our sins.

Lyrics and Music: Ben H. Price

It was alone the Savior prayed
In dark Gethsemane;
Alone He drained the bitter cup
And suffered there for me.

Alone, alone, He bore it all alone;
He gave Himself to save His own,
He suffered, bled and died alone, alone.

It was alone the Savior stood
In Pilate’s judgment hall;
Alone the crown of thorns He wore,
Forsaken thus by all.

Alone upon the cross He hung
That others He might save;
Forsaken then by God and man,
Alone, His life He gave.

Can you reject such matchless love?
Can you His claim disown?
Come, give your all in gratitude,
Nor leave Him thus alone.

May this hymn speak to your hearts.
