The Damnation Of Judas And The Salvation Of The Thief Lyrics by Vengaboys

 

The Damnation Of Judas And The Salvation Of The Thief by Vengaboys


Let us now look upon, a situation from to learn
Judas and the thief, one to heaven, one to burn
Not too long ago, and in a land not far away
One was saved one was lost, this is history
Judas was religious, stay away from that mask
The thief was truly guilty, and here is where it's at
Once you understand that, guilty before God all we are
You can receive forgiveness, in repentance at the cross
Judas was never a true friend, just pushing his own glory
Smiling in your face, stabbing you in the back, "doing this for God" is his
Story
Sitting on that paper throne, elevated oh so high
Well now the match's been lit, later days to the empire of lies
The thief on the other hand knew a wrong from a right
Doing wrong much of the time and sometimes doing right
But he recognized the truth when he spoke to Jesus Christ
His deeds had nothing to do with it, he'd never earn heaven as a right
The damnation of Judas and the Salvation of the thief
As for Judas in the scheme of things, as this point it's just a matter of
Time
Hanging from the rope he spoke, the witness does not lie
The facts are in and the veredicts out - and it cannot be denied
He sealed his fate with and act of friendship - betrayer - no friend of mine
The thief in the situation, knowing he deserved to die
Called out to Immanuel, Lord remember I
I come to you, with nothing more than the wretched man I am
Guilty in my iniquities deserving only to be damned
It's for your sins I am Crucified, the Spirit confirmed time and again
The thief in his pain had joy in his heart - forgiveness it was his
On his way to heaven he still had to deal the situation
Understand that you bring nothing in repentance which merits salvation
The damnation of Judas and the Salvation of the thief
