An original hymn with text by Mark Fotheringham below.
YouTube video:

Upon the cross, in agony He suffered.

On either side, two robbers hung aloft.

The Sinless One! With sinners He was punished,

Yet still He taught until His life was lost.


The robbers looked upon a soul now tattered;

One looked with scorn, one with humility.

One saw a man bereft of pow'r and glory;

The other saw his Lord in Majesty.


One knew no shame and taunted there the Savior:

"Now save thyself, if power you can claim."

Confessing guilt, the other showed contrition:

"Remember me," he asked despite his shame.


The Savior answered him who showed compassion:

"Today shalt thou, be met in paradise."

Two robbers hung condemned for sin committed,

But only one would have to pay the price.


In every heart, two robbers seek the Savior.

Condemned to die, they seek to hide their shame.

One scorns the law to justify his actions.

The other seeks a purifying flame.


When justice comes, the power of Atonement

Can pay the price demanded by the law.

Oh may my heart be molded by repentance;

Bless me with strength to mend my every flaw.
