                                      THE OTHER THIEF

    I AM THE OTHER THIEF  I WAS ON CALVARY'S HILL
    I SAW THE MAN CALLED JESUS WHOM THE SOLDIERS KILLED
     I HEARD THE FOUL CURSING MOCKERY AND SPEW
    AND JESUS CRIED FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO
    I FELT THE NAILS ALSO FOR THEY WERE IN MY HANDS
    YET AMID MY PAIN AND SUFFERING I ALSO CURSED THAT MAN

     THE OTHER THIEF THERE WITH ME ALSO SHARED THE PAIN
     BUT HE CRIED LORD REMEMBER AND HIS SOUL HE GAINED
     NOW HE NO LONGER SUFFERS, BUT  I HAVE THIS FLAME
     IF ONLY I COULD BE RENAILED I WOULD DO THE SAME
     REMEMBER ME REMEMBER ME I REMEMBER WELL
     BETTER TO TRUST HIM ON A CROSS THEN FEEL THE FLAMES OF HELL
