He chose to go alone

by Royston © 2022

10,000 angels watched You climb the hill,
waiting for Your command, ready to kill.
Just think of the massacre there would be
for one angel could destroy an entire army.

But that was not to be the Jesus Way.
For You kept silent and sent them away.
Laid aside Your power and Majesty
and climbed on alone because You loved me.

Oh Lord, 'twas love that bore the pain and loss,
for no nails could have bound You to that cross.
You could have stepped down and just walked away
leaving me alone on Judgement Day.
