Track: They Could Not

They Could Not Lyrics

By Ron Harris and Claire Cloninger

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

Chorus:
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

(Chorus)

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

(Chorus)

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
They could not.
