The sinner, knowing himself, chiding his fellow, speaking truth that day the righteousness of their sentence the judgment upon them paying for their sin according to the law
The Messiah, hanging beside them holy and innocent, carrying the sins of others servant, slave, to the cross His life for our own our burden on his shoulders giving his all, in submission to God
A truth for this night sitting quiet in the sanctuary that the pain he carried, the death the life he gave was for me That the thorns were my sin, my life he bore to the cross The nails were my stain, mine alone
We measure others, finding their fault but the truth is that we each had our part for without the savings, the price paid in blood none of us would share in the fate of the thief who would see Christ in paradise.
