What held the angels back?
What kept them from Your side?
And just watch as You died?
Tell me how did they stay in their place
As they watched the tears stream down Your face?
Or did they watch as You cried?
Did the Father hold them with one arm
As the other covered His face?
Did they fight against His authority
As they watched Your show of grace?
It’s something I’ve been pondering
That runs deeper than my imaginings.
I’m wondering, what will Your answer be?
Please tell me what held the angels back
