"The Third Man" lyrics

The Third Man

Last night I dreamed
I took a walk
Up Calvary's lonely hill
The things I saw
With my own eyes
Could not have been more real

I saw upon three crosses
Three men in agony
Two cried out for mercy
And the third man looked at me

And oh the hurt
In this man's eyes
Just broke my heart in two
It seemed that I could hear him say
I'm doing this for you

I knelt beneath the third man's cross
And slowly bowed my head
I reached out to touch his feet
And it stained my hand's with red

And when I heard him cry in pain
I raised my eyes to see
The blood spilled from the third man's side
And some of it spilled on me

The third man wore a crown of thorns
Spikes held him to the tree
I heard him say, "Oh, God my God
Hast Thou forsaken me"

And there within a mighty crowd
The ones who mocked him cried
King save Thyself if thou art King
And then the third man died

Suddenly I heard the thunder roll
Saw the lightening pierce the sky
The third man was still hanging there
And I began to cry

I saw the boulders fall
And heard the breaking of the ground
Then I awoke and though I dreamed
I touched my cheek and found

My eyes were wet
Where I had cried
A dream I wished I knew
I still can hear
The third man say
I'm doing this for you
