Those crucified with Him reproached Him too,
But one soul worked, God-guided, towards the truth.
"Father, forgive them - they know not what they do"- Was that the word through which change was produced
So that the thief confessed death was his due
While Jesus was in every action good?
That Jesus was the Lord he also knew
And longed to see Christ's kingdom introduced.
The Lord did not delay the joyful news
That paradise followed what he endured:
But more than that He was the Saviour who
Would be with him, his righteousness secured.
