Did the Angels Sweat?
Did the angels
Those sinew-armed strongmen of the ages
Sweat great drops of celestial self control
Did tears run down the faces
Of those who continually see the Face
Did holy muscles tremble and twitch
at being restrained
at seeing urgency and being forbidden
at hearing the cries and stopping their unearthly ears
Did eternal eyes flinch and close against the sight
Of a Savior they couldn’t save?
