He Could Have Called 10,000 Angels.

He Could Have Called 10,000 Angels…


On a cross… Jesus suffered

 for you and me.

He could have called 10,000

angels to set him free...


Nailed to this cross, he went

 through so much pain.

He knew his purpose and the

reason why he came.


Being there for all of mankind

was his choice.

Weakened and alone…

 One could hear his voice;


“Father forgive them.” 

 “They don't know what they’re doing!”

As the crowd listened…

 Many began believing.


“My God why have you forsaken me?”

 With one last breath…

And then...  And very quickly…

 There was death!


For all of the pain and suffering

 he was to endure

Was so that a plan of salvation

 is now secure.


This same Jesus, who was to rise again.

Is forever to be our atonement for sin!


Seated at the right hand

 of God the father... In heaven above..

He awaits there for us all with

 an abundance of  love!


Won’t you accept his gift

of life that he’s giving?

And allow him to forever change

 the way you’re living!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
