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.
Jesus Christ Superstar – Gethsemane
One response to “Jesus Christ Superstar – Gethsemane”
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.
