Corrected-----I got the meter for this poem partly from the song "Away in a Manger" After thinking about the angels rejoycing over the birth of the King- I began to wonder- What they thought when He was being crucified??

The Angels Kept Silent
3-25-07
Danette Kettwich




Away up the hillside
My Savior was led.
My humble Lord Jesus
With thorns on his head.

The angels above
Looked down on His way;
They kept silent as they
Watched Him that day.

They watched as the beam
Was dropped in a hole.
Wings trembled in rage
And made thunder roll.

Not long ago they watched
Above where he lay.
They rejoiced as the Savior
Was placed in the hay.

This time they watched silent,
They did not rejoice;
They did not echo in
Any harmonic voice.

Did they wait in their legions,
A single word to be said?
One word to prompt a rescue
Archangel led.

Did they know this way was
Gods eternal plan?
From the sword in His side
To the spikes in His hands.

The angels kept silent
As He cried It is done.
Did they weep as if
The enemy had just won?

As the Messiah was placed
Into the grave,
Did they know of the plan
For human souls to save?

Three days passed as they
Watched the stony place.
The death shroud then fell
They looked upon His face.

Heaven could no longer
Hold back their voice;
Their silence was broken
In harmonic rejoice.

Hallelujah! He is risen!
He has risen from the dead!
He is alive! He is alive!
Just as He said!

Death has no victory,
Death has no sting!
For Christ is alive
Hes the everlasting King!
