I am a thief, I am a murderer
Walking up this lonely hill
What have I done? 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, such a long time
since I've lived with peace and rest
Now I am here, 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
That they call the King of the Jews
They don't believe that He's the Messiah
But, somehow, I know it's true.
And they laugh at Him in mockery,
and beat Him till he bleeds,
They nail Him to the rugged cross,
And raise Him, they raise Him up next to me.
My time has come, I'm slowly fading
And I deserve what I receive
Jesus, when You are in Your kingdom,
Could you please remember me?
And He looks at me still holding on
and tears fall from His eyes
He says 'I tell the truth
Today, you will live with Me in paradise'
And I know that my time is coming soon
And I know that my time, my time is coming soon
And I know paradise...paradise is coming soon.
