"Thief" Lyrics and Stage Directions

Thief Entrance with Soldiers

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

Soldiers Setting Up Cross

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

Enter Jesus, Soldiers, and Mockers

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 that it's true.

Bridge

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

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

He looks at me still holding on
The tears fall from His eyes
He says, "I tell the truth, today you will live with me in Paradise."

Jesus Dies Here

Thief's Death

And I know, that my time is coming soon.
And I know, that my time is coming soon  <-------- Theif Dies In This Line

Resurrection and Exit

And I know
Paradise. . . Paradise is coming soon.
