Jesus Christ Superstar – Gethsemane

This is one of the most powerful songs ever written. Granted Webber at the time was writing about a “rockstar” and not about Jesus specifically. He wove in the story of Christ and twisted it a bit, but what he left us with are some gripping songs that, while not always theologically sound, illustrate the burden Christ had.

  1. Did you ever listen to the original Ian Gillian version? It’s chilling.

    Tim Rice wrote these lyrics. The same Tim Rice who writes Disney songs now. Go figure.
