They could not - sung by Sandy Patti


They could not - sung by Sandy Patti

They looked at Him and saw a single man
A carpenter with healing in His hands
They saw Him calm a sea and heal a dying man
They saw but could they really understand

They could not, They could not
Though they tried, they could not
He was just a simple carpenter but with healing in His hands
But could they really understand, they could not

They listened to the teaching that they heard
They wondered at the mystery of His word
They wondered what He meant, about a Father's plan
They heard but could they really understand

They could not, They could not
Though they tried, they could not
They listened to the teaching about a Father's plan
But could they really understand, they could not

So finally upon a rugged cross
They killed the man who would not suffer loss
And when at last they took what willingly He gave
He died, but could they keep Him in the grave

They could not, They could not
Praise God, they could not
And when at last they took from Him what willingly He gave
Could they keep Him in the grave, could they keep Him in the grave,
Could they keep Him in the grave...

They could not, They could not
Praise God, they could not
And when at last they took from Him what willingly He gave
Could they keep Him in the grave, could they keep Him in the grave,
Could they keep Him in the grave, They could not!!!!


This song was playing on repeat in my car for the past one week while I drove to work. It started since Easter and I have been attending SIB KL regularly. I bought the Pastors message on the Cross on audio cds. I have been listening to the message in the car while I drive to work. I accepted Christ in 1988. It has been so long ... and it is so easy to act, talk and walk like Christian. The foundation bible study classes was a great way to go back to the basics, the foundations.

The lyrics ... every single word permeated my very being .... the singer is a very anointed singer and the words sung by her was powerful and it ministered to me. Every morning while I drove to work was an hour to worship God, to love Him....to be thankful that He came into my life .. that I could hear and understand Him and let Him accept me.
