Between Two Thieves

Previously recorded by Ivan Parker.

Written by Daryl Williams and Jeff Pearson

VERSE 1

HISTORY HAS NOT RECORDED THEIR NAMES

TWO MEN WHO LIVED THEIR WHOLE LIVES IN VAIN

WORTHLESS AND LOW, THEY BOTH WERE THE SAME

BUT NOW WE CAN SEE

HOW GOD PAINTS A PICTURE WITH THESE WRETCHED LIVES

TO SHOW US THE FATE OF ALL OF MANKIND

IN THESE TWO THIEVES IS WHERE YOU WILL FIND

MAN’S GREATEST NEED

 

VERSE 2

THEY WERE CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED

CRUCIFIED BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN

THERE SEEMED TO BE NO HOPE FOR THEM

ON CALVARY

BUT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THEIR PAIN

MERCY AND GRACE WAS TAKING THEIR SHAME

AS JESUS BECAME THE LAMB WHO WAS SLAIN

SO ALL COULD BE FREE

 

CHORUS

BETWEEN TWO THIEVES MY SAVIOR DIED

ONE WAS LOST BUT ONE AWOKE IN PARADISE

WITH ARMS OPEN WIDE HE’S STILL REACHING OUT

TO ANYONE WHO WILL BELIEVE

THERE IS NEW LIFE BECAUSE OF WHO DIED

BETWEEN TWO THEIVES

 

BRIDGE

ONE CHOSE THE TRUTH

AND ONE TURNED AWAY

THAT’S STILL THE CHOICE

WE HAVE TODAY
