In the solo to follow, is a glimpse of the proud and- beautiful city of Jerusalem—and then the lament of Jesus over the-city. . . The story tells of Jesus entering' the Temple and driving'Out those who bought and sold there. This is followed by a prayer of consecration, "Another temple J waits Thee, Lord 1 Divine, the temple Of my heart, O make it Thine." The scene moves to the Mount of Olives where His disciples realize that His Kingdom was not of this world. He goes wearily up to ths Mount of Olives. "No joyous multitude was there; no garments at His feet . were strewn. The beasts have lairs; the birds have nests; but He hath no where to lay His head." "He was despised, and rejected of men. A Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief," as foretold in the Old Testament. In Part II is. seen Jesus at the Passover supper, pouring water and" washing the feet of the disciples. And He said, "A new, commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you. By this shall all men know that ye are Mine."
