Conway Twitty - Third Man Lyrics

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 he looked at me
And oh the hurt in this man's eyes that just broke my heart in two
It seemed I could hear him say son I'm doing this for you
I knelt beneath the third mean'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
And I heard him say oh my God my God why 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 I 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

    Thank you for giving your life for me, if you can die for me, then i should live for you, if there were no cross my sole would still be lost, and jesus i owe my life to you.

  5. Country boys In white oak

    Some people don’t understand that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins so they need to listen to this song and they will understand (mostly to the people who do shootings and murders)

  6. John Petty

    Thank you for giving you life for me, and being my lord and savior.

    joe Roberts

    Mary Maness because Satan is the Prince of this world. He has blinders on people. He deceives people by using worldly explanations to how the world was created, such as science and the big bang.

  36. conditionofanonymit1

    I couldn't find this song no where on Y/T a few years ago, so i ask a few up-loaders to find if-n they could, well one did and he's in Japan, @Tsukikage726 and he up loaded it for me. but Y/T took it down for about a year. but i see he up loaded again, and then I guess you up loaded next, so thank you. i had this album so many decade ago, plus i have the Cassete Tape still. this will of course bring tears to your very soul to know that our Lord our God laid down his life for all... COA ...
