Ten Thousand Angels

By Lynn Cooper

CCLI Number: 3641956

Here is another wonderful song by Lynn. This song is sung by Juanitta in act 4 of our revival play Come Fill My Heart. Rhesa and I made the midi file together. - Elton February 13, 2001

Many thanks to Brenda Hoddinott for allowing use of her painting entitled "Imagine" as the background image for this page. I saw the painting at her site and immediately thought of Juanitta.

(Verse 1)
I know you're hurting,
I can see it in your eyes.
There's nothing I can say or do
to ease your heart or mind,
But there's someone you can talk to,
He'll come and ease your pain.
He knows your every thought and prayer,
Just call upon His name.

May He send ten thousand angels strong
To comfort you and guide you through this storm.
May He send ten thousand angels strong
To strengthen you, and guide you through this storm.

(Verse 2)
He understands the broken heart,
The suffering of the soul,
And in this crazy stormy night,
Yes, God is in control.
So let Him take this cross for you.
Your burdens He'll make light,
And to the top of Calvary's hill
Your fears be released tonight.

(Repeat Chorus)
May He send ten thousand angels strong
To comfort you and guide you through this storm.
May He send ten thousand angels strong
To strengthen you, and guide you through this storm.

(Guitar Solo)

(Modified Chorus)
May He send ten thousand angels strong
To comfort you and guide you through this storm
To strengthen you, and guide you through this storm.

Rock-a-bye dear child of God
With a blanket of stars above.
Sleep sound in Jesus,
in the arms of His love.

A realization that we'll never see our loved ones here on earth is a painful time after going through sleepless nights and expectancies for a long while. A song is a blessing. I want to learn to sing this to my loved ones.

This beautiful song has been a source of comfort to someone special who is suffering with liver disease and has just lost her 40 yr old daughter. I will sing this at the funeral at the mom's request. Blessings. LBRM
what a supremely lovely sound. It is so soothing and calm that even in the midst of tragedy and strife one can surely find peace to make it through. An extremely appropriate song for times of sudden death
Its sad to see so many hurting people, especially abused ones. I cannot imagine being on the giving end of abuse. This song does bless me, and I intend to write an arrangement of it to perform in church (sax, vocal). Very pretty song.

About 2 weeks before my father (who had been seriously ill for over 15 years) began yealping or weak shouting if you will from his room late one evening. He could not talk because of strokes he had during his illness. I came into his room and he waved at me. He pointed around the room and told me as best he could "I see, I see, oh, I wish I could tell you" I asked him "daddy, can you see something?" he muttered "yeppah, oh yesssa" He kept pointing at the foot of his bed in the air and basically around his room. He motioned they were big.
Two weeks later he died. This song makes me think of that evening and I believe there were a host of angles in his room.

noel (noellpaver_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
This is the most beautiful song and thank-you Lynn for sharing it with us. I chose this song to sing at my brothers funeral service in May, 02 and all eyes and ears were watching & listening to the words. And people were crying, it was very spiritually moving in the whole place. I am so glad I found it, it was the right choice .
You are truly an angel from God.
Denys (dscharf4jc05_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
my mother went on to be with the lord march 1st of this year and it is comforting to know that angels carried her on home to be with the lord i serve and this song makes me think of her and the lord and how blessed i am that the lord chose her to be my mom.

I felt so enlightened with this song. I'm going through some tough time nowadays and moving on seems hard. I have a very special friend who always tries her best to lift me up, especially at times like now. But there are moments that you seel so alone and there's no one to turn to and no one seems to understand how deep the pain and how much you are suffering. I believe in angels and I believe God sees all the pain and suffering and He is healing us with His undying love through Jesus Christ and Mother Mary. Thank you.
Rosario (amiableme08_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
This was a just wonderful song and beatiful melody. I feel a real comfort by listening as I also read the lyrics. It has been a hard time this winter as I had to leave my beloved wife for 40 years to a nursing home, because of Alzheimer.
Many thanks, and may God use your gift aboundently.

Thank you somuch for the lovely lyrics and i love the music...i'll try to learn the song so that i can sing it everyday when am down hearted...this song will help me to breath a new life... (islandbloomer_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
My home was hell because my husband was beating me everyday at home and I was not allowed to have even proper food. I worked in a software company and had to go to work with bruised face sometimes. I was not at all able to focus on my work.I was so numb that I did not have the strength or energy to pray.I worried about my little 2 yr old daughter's future and mine too. I never thought that I will see the next year.I somehow found this song and that was my first thing to do at office -sometime numerous times a day.God spoke to me through this song. This was in 2005.The site didn't have a feature to leave a comment and Now in 2009 I am still alive and God brought me to the US from my country with the band of strong ten thousand angels and God is still in control of the situation like never before.I still go through the same situations but better than before. I am not having bruised faces...I am having excellent food. God has eased my pain.Thank you for being a channel of blessing to me.
Wonderful song. From philippines

This is a very inspiring song for those who are burdened down and have lost all hope.. this song has been an inspiration to many people in nursing homes and hospitals.. I sang this song at a funeral and again it was an inspiration to those who had lost someone dwear to them... When I first heard this song it ministered to my heart as well and I can't say enough how it gives hope to those that seem to have lost all hope... God Bless the writer of this song and may God use you to write more like it...

I came across this song not knowing why it was written until I heard the song. I immediately thought of the job hunt (almost a year) that I'm going through. This is such a beautiful song for many different reasons.
Hi Lynn,
I used your music (this song) at our son's funeral back in 2000. You spoke at a Women's retreat in Correctionville IA. It was a blessing to meet you. Your music has touched my heart, especially in those "empty" moments in life. But trusting & knowing God provides strength for each day (somedays each hour)is what keeps me going. Your music is an inspiration to me & I know it has blessed several others as well. God Bless you as you continue on your musical journey!

My husband of over 18 years left just before Thanksgiving. I never saw it coming, and was so devastated that I tried to end my life. God didn't allow the result I was seeking, but rather turned me around, healed me completely, and gave my life back to me. This beautiful song describes exactly what God has done in my life - and reminds me that I am not alone in my pain and sorrow. God sent ten thousand angels :)) What a glorious vision in song!
Joyce (attnjsmith_AT_aol_DOT_com)
In this parsonage house my father in law went home to heaven.
My wife, his daughter is in much pain and grief. I sent this to her in hopes it eases the pain and dries her tears.
thanks lynn it dried mine, and eased my pain as well.

There are two songs that 'carried' me through a very difficult time in my life. Both songs are located at SongsofPraise.org. When faced with the possibility of major surgery and knowing that the doctors had very little hope....I sat at my computer singing this song. Ultimately God performed a wonderful miracle...and as a pastor...I share this song with many who need hope.
Michael Ezell (michaelbcc_AT_msn_DOT_com)
It's such a beautiful song,it goes straight into your heart!!
I have never had a song touch me like this song has done... It is an awesome song that can be sang to people that are in nursing homes and hospitals that may have lost all hope for the future... The words of this song ministers to the hearts of the people... Thank you for sharing this song... May God Bless....
Bruce W Watson (ImBrowsin_AT_aol_DOT_com)
It really gets to your heart and comforts you and reassures you that God is there.
This song was suggested to me by a lady who went by the name of Parmo, when my husband had a heart attack. I have since lost touch with her, but this song always reminds me of her kindness and understanding. I pray that somehow God will let her and I connect again. This song brings so much comfort to me. I absolutely love it. I went by the name Songs for Christ
Charlene (pink61rose_AT_sbcglobal_DOT_net)
it is a very beautiful song letting us know that god is there with all his angels to help us over lifes battles and sorrows.
fern sigmon (codyfeatherwings_AT_aol_DOT_com)
Thank you for sharing this comforting song. It has been a blessing to me while going trough a storm in my life,while my husband suddenly became ill after surgery with a Pulmonary embolism and a clot in his leg. Jesus is our Burden bearer. The words of the song are such a comfort.You are the angel that God has sent for this time. Blessings.
This song has helped me through the difficult times when my father was sick and passed away. This song has so much meaning to me. I hope it has someone else at the same time.
Heather (friend_family72000_AT_yahoo_DOT_com)
I first heard this song several years ago and I am wondering why I waited so long to try to get it into my church. It is so comforting, and has such a singable tune. My friend and I do a nursing home ministry and I pray we'll get it into our repitoir.
Friends of ours are suffering through the unexpected death of their 33 year old son. One of the songs requested for his service is "Ten Thousand Angels". Your words and music are bringing solace and reassurance to these grieving parents. Thank you for sharing your talent and God's love through your music ministry.
Thank you so much for putting this on. I down loaded and listen to it lots to comfort myself . God Bless you for being one of His angels and touching many.
Elizabeth (efox553_AT_aol_DOT_com)
Awesome. Thank you.
Absolutely Beautiful! I downloaded it to my personal PC. May God Bless you,
