Lyrics:

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"

Chorus:
He could have called ten thousand angels
To destroy the world (the world) and set Him free
He could have called ten thousand angels
But He died alone (alone) for you and me

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
All alone He suffered everything

Repeat Chorus 1

When they nailed Him to the cross
His mother stood nearby
He said "Woman, behold thy son"
He cried, "I thirst for water"
But they gave Him none to drink
Then the sinful work of man (was) was done

Repeat Chorus 1

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 (was done)

Chorus 2:
He could have called ten thousand angels
To destroy the world (the world) and set Him free (Him free)
He could have called ten (called) thousand angels (ten thousand)
But He died alone (o yes He did) (alone) for you and me (me)
