THE THIRD MAN
(Bobby Helms - Teddy Wilburn - Frances Heighton)

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 on me
And oh the hurt in this man's eyes just broke my heart in two
It seemed that I could hear him say, I'm doing this all for you
I knelt beneath the third man's cross and humblely bowed my head
I reached out and I touch his feet and it stained my hand's with blood
In agonizing pain he cried I raised my eyes to see
The blood spilled from the third man's side some of it fell on me
The third man wore a crown of thorns spikes held him to the tree
And I heard him say my God my God why hast Thou forsaken me
And there among a mighty crowd the ones who mocked him cried
If thou art King then save thyself and then the third man died
Suddenly I heard the thunder roll and lightening pierce the sky
The third man was still hanging there and I began to cry
I saw the mountains break into and the buildings rent in twain
I saw the dead raise from the graves and walk on earth again
A time like this has never been...Twas darkness everywhere
When I awakened from my dream My eyes were filled with tears...
