128. Ten Thousand Angels

  1. They bound the hands of Jesus in the garden where He prayed;

    They led Him through the streets in shame.

    They spat upon the Saviour 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.

  2. Upon His precious head they placed a crown of thorns;

    They laughed and said, "Behold the King!"

    They struck Him and they cursed Him and they mocked His holy name;

    All alone He suffered everything.

  3. 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;

    Salvation's wondrous plan was done.

Something wrong? Let me know.
