Thief

This song is by Third Day and appears…


Third Day (1996) album version:
I am a thief, I am a murderer
Walking up this lonely hill
What have I done? No, I don't remember
No one knows just how I feel
And I know that my time is coming soon.

It's been so long. Oh, such a long time
Since I've lived with peace and rest
Now I am here, at my destination
I guess things work for the best.
And I know that my time is coming soon

Who is this man? This man beside me
They call the King of the Jews
Oh, they don't believe that He's the Messiah
But, somehow I know that it's true.

They laugh at Him in mockery,
And they beat Him till He bleeds
And they nail Him to the rugged cross,
And raise Him, yeah they raise Him, they raise Him up next to me

My time has come, and I'm slowly fading
But I deserve what I receive
Jesus when You are in Your kingdom
Could You please, please remember me

And He looks at me still holding on
The tears fall from His eyes
And He says I tell the truth
Today, you will be with Me in paradise, oh yes
And I know that my time, my time is coming soon, oh yeah, yes
And I know that my time, my time is coming soon, yeah, yeah
And I know Paradise, Paradise is coming soon.

Oh yes, oh yes
