Post Original "Gethsemane" lyrics?
Okay, so I'm watching the BBC documentary "The Story of Musicals" and I'm at the section where they're talking about JCS. There's a clip of the original Broadway Jesus singing "Gethesemane" (or at least, I'm assuming) but the lyrics are different! I can't decipher what the heck he's singing. Could someone help me out here?

It's right around 2:00.

There are two clips: one in English performed by Paul Nicholas, and the other apparently a Jesus from the French cast. If you don't recognize the words, it's probably because it's in French.

Well no wonder, though why would they use the French version in an English documentary? Anyway, thank you!

Well, you'll note the people being interviewed were mentioning the French production at that moment...
