This is a music video with both the group Acappella and the Gaither Family singing the song “Criminal on the Cross”. I grew up listening to the group Acappella.

As promised, I said I would post a Christian Music Video each day during the 30 Day Christian Music Challenge to help introduce you to a new band, artist or song. This is day 26 of 30.

Lyrics Criminal on the Cross

Well, it was many years ago in the time of the Bible that they took Him up to Calvary.
They could have let Him go, but instead they chose Barabbas just to set another criminal free.
When they crucified the ever loving, caring Master with compassion flowing from His eyes
Well, He said to a thief who was begging Him for mercy that “today you’ll live in Paradise.”
And I’m saved like the criminal on the cross.
Praise God, I’m saved, no more to suffer loss.
Well, He said I’d live in Paradise and he’s taken care of the cost.
Hallelujah! I’m saved like the criminal on the cross.

Well, on the Judgment day when all the people gather ’round
Him and they want to hear what He will declare.
There will never ever be more intense anticipation that has ever happened anywhere.
When they call my name to defend my reputation there is only one thing I can say:
“I’m a wretch, I’m a worm, I’m a no good sinner.” But He said, “I’ll save you anyway.”

Well I’, saved, I’m saved, through Jesus I am saved.
Well I’, saved, I’m saved, His mercy showed the way.
Well I’, saved, I’m saved, no more for me to say.
Well I’, saved, I’m saved, in Paradise today.
