He could have called ten thousand angels
[ ac. Guitar ]
They bound the hands of Jesus in the garden where he pray
They led him through the street 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
[ ac. Guitar ]
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 mocked his holy name
And 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... Fade out

    My husband used to sing this as a boy, going out with Ray Overholt on evangelical meetings and revivals, because everyone was astounded at this curly-haired, skinny little kid who could really sing, and sing lous and with feeling! I thought it only right that it should play at this next week's Memorial Service we're having for him, after suffering with a blood cancer for five years. He's out of pain and with Jesus, praise Him! -bechtelheimer@cox. Net.
