Thief on the cross next to Jesus

Post by ancillajc » Sun Aug 19, 2012 10:00 pm

Hello, y'all! I'm looking for a song/hymn about the Crucifixion from the perspective (I think) of the thief on the cross next to Christ. It is NOT Third Day's song "Thief"; it was on a cassette tape my Dad had around the years 1996-1999. Thanks!

Thief on the cross next to Jesus

Is this it?

From The Story - How Love Wins (THIEF)

My life began like any other man
Held beneath a mother's loving gaze
Somewhere between now and then
I lost the man I could have been
Took everything that wasn't mine to take
But Love believes that it is not too late
Only one of us deserves this cross
A suffering that should belong to me
Deep within this man I hang beside
Is the place where shame and grace collide
And it's beautiful agony
That He believes it's not too late for me
This is how Love wins, every single time
Climbing high upon a tree where someone else should die
This is how Love heals, the deepest part of you
Letting Himself bleed into the middle of your wounds
This is what Love says, standing at the door
You don't have to be who you've been before
Silenced by His voice, death can't speak again
This is how Love wins
Did you see this moment from the start
That we would drink this of cup of suffering?
I wonder, did we ever meet?
Childhood games in dusty streets
For all my many sorrows and regrets
Nothing could compare to just this one
That in the presence of my King
I cannot fall upon my knees
I cannot carry You up to Your throne
You instead, will carry me back home.
What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood, nothing but the blood
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood, Nothing but the blood
Because this is what Love say, standing at the door
You don't have to be who you've been before
And silenced by His voice, death can't speak again
This is how Love wins.

Or this?

Remember Me

I looked in Your eyes
And saw it for a moment
The passion in Your cry
The chains of life are broken

Put to death by Your people
You came to bring us life
Only hope for the hopeless
Will You remember me?

I've been ashamed
I've been put down
Head in my hands
My life on the ground

Left heaven to save
Liars and thieves
Sinners like me
Your blood sets us free

Who am I
That You would remember me?

Spent all of my years
Stealing from the world
With everything I had
I was still so poor

You have everything to lose
But You're dying here with me
I believe
Will You remember me?

I've been ashamed
I've been put down
Head in my hands
My life on the ground

Left heaven to save
Liars and thieves
Sinners like me
Your blood sets us free

Who am I?

Take what I have left my Savior
Take me with You from this cross
When I leave this life completely
Remember me

I've been ashamed
I've been put down
Head in my hands
My life on the ground

Left heaven to save
Liars and thieves
Sinners like me
Your blood sets us free

I've been ashamed
I've been put down
Head in my hands
My life on the ground

Left heaven to save
Liars and thieves
Sinners like me
Your blood sets us free

Who am I
That You would remember me?

No, unfortunately, it's neither of those. I listened to this song in the 90's, so it was definitely written before then.
Thanks for your help!
