Ten Thousand Angels

Ten Thousand Angels- Ray Overholt


They bound the hands of Jesus
in the garden where he prayed
They led Him thro' the streets in shame.
They spat upon the Savior
so pure and free from sin.
They said crucify Him;
He's to blame.

He could have called ten thousand angels
to destroy the world and set Him free
He could have called ten thousand angels,
but He died alone for you and me.

Upon His precious head
they placed a crown of thorns;
They laughed and said "Behold the King!"
They struck Him and tey cursed Him
and mocked His Holy Name.
All alone He suffered everything.

He could have called ten thousand angels
to destroy the world and set Him free
He could have called ten thousand angels,
but He died alone for you and me.

When they nailed Him to the cross,
His mother stood nearby
He said, "Woman, behold thy son!"
He cried, "I thirst for water,"
but they gave Him none to drink.
Then the sinful work of man was done.

He could have called ten thousand angels
to destroy the world and set Him free
He could have called ten thousand angels,
but He died alone for you and me.

To the howling mob He yielded;
He did not for mercy cry.
The cross of shame He took alone.
And when He cried, "It's finished,"
He gave Himself to die.
Salvations wondrous plan was done.

He could have called ten thousand angels
to destroy the world and set Him free
He could have called ten thousand angels,
but He died alone for you and me.

"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"- Matthew 27:46
"I will never leave you, nor forsake you."- Hebrews 13:6

God is good, amen?
