(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.

Valerie2009-06-28About 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.
2009-05-30I heard this song for the first time yesterday while at a funeral company's dove release what can i say people were in tears the song is soooo meaningful it is fantastic
noel2009-05-29how do i download this song
Denys2009-03-24This 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.
norma miles2009-03-21my 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.
Rosario2009-03-11I 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.
Leon Kristoffer, Norway2009-03-10This 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.

2009-02-04Am facing a difficult time right now with my husband. Going through this song really touches me,and i know that God touches my heart and he said, "MY CHILD AM WITH YOU ALWAYS"...came to think about it, yeah why should i worry so much when he's right beside me...
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...
2009-01-27My 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.

2008-01-23I 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.
Anita2008-01-14Hi 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!

Joyce2007-12-21My 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!
pastor herb wheelock2007-11-13In 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.
cathy wales2007-10-11when one is down and alone this song is the best socours, it brings us to the realisation of the care and security we have in Christ. God bless you lynn Cooper
Michael Ezell2007-09-26There 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.
cory2007-09-14It's such a beautiful song,it goes straight into your heart!!
Bruce W Watson2007-08-14I 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....
Charlotte2007-08-07It really gets to your heart and comforts you and reassures you that God is there.
Charlene2007-05-21This 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

Heather2007-03-18This 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.
BOB HAINSTOCK2007-03-13I 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.
2007-03-13Friends 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.
