Ten Thousand Angels

There were ten thousand angels all around the cross;

They were there to protect Him no matter what the cost.

They prayed to the Father....please set our Savior free;

God said: hush now my children, for it’s not meant to be.


There were ten thousand angels on Calvary’s Hill that day;

They hovered all around Him, and kept the world at bay.

They cared not for His human body, it was His soul that kept them there;

They watched on in helplessness, for it was His cross to bare.


These ten thousand angels were there at His’ birth;

They followed their precious Jesus all the way to Earth.

They vowed never to leave Him, they would always be standing by;

To swoop in and rescue Him, if He ever gave the cry.


They pledged their allegiance to Him, they would stay until the end;

These same ten thousand angels who were there when His life began.

They were always around Him Christ was never alone;

Ten thousand angels stayed to escort their Master home.
