A Wretch Like Me

I am the least of all
a sinner
I know no other as bad as I
my hands drove nails into the King
my mouth spoke evil of God's Son
I mocked Him in my pride
and thought it best that He should die
He should die, but not I

O, the weight of my guilt!
Like a wagon load
I'll lug it with my heavy feet
and hang my head in shame
until I reach my destiny
and burn as I should
and burn just as I should

I never met a man so vile
I caused so much grief
What grace could be given
to a murderer and a thief?
I deserve to hang
and be repaid for all my faults
Yes, I deserve to hang

What a sight to see
A righteous man dying next to me?
I ought to be condemned by Him
I took His name in vain
What a righteous man He is
A man that loves His enemies
and in pain he pleads,
"Forgive them, for they cannot see."
"Forgive them, Father, please."

Do you really mean it?
Could you say that to an enemy?
If you prayed for those wicked dogs
what could be said for me, a worm?
O, please, will you remember me?
I know that I am sick
But your mercy is too good to believe!
Your mercy... Can I believe it?

Surely this is He!
Who else could it be?
It is written that He would come
Could this be that One?
And don't we have any fear?
We're getting what we deserve
and He has done no wrong
Look! We die justly
and He has done no wrong!

Now I see Him dying
He can hardly breathe
I see Him heavily sighing
Soon we'll both be gone
Maybe I could ask...?
Maybe I could speak?
"Lord, will you remember me
when you enter into glory?"
"Lord, remember me."

And Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, to day shalt thou be with me in paradise."
-Luke 23:43

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
