‘Do you think I cannot call on my Father,
and he will at once put at my disposal
more than twelve legions of angels?’

Matthew 26:53

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.’

He could have called ten thousand angels,
But he died alone, for you and me.
