117. He Will Remember Me

1 When on the cross of Calv’ry
The Lord was crucified;
The mob stood ’round about Him
And mocked until He died.
Two thieves were nailed beside Him
To share the agony,
But one of them cried out to Him,
"O Lord remember me.”

Refrain:
Will the Lord remember me,
When I am called to go?
When I have crossed death’s chilly sea,
will He His love there show?
O, yes, He heard my feeble cries,
From bondage set me free.
And when I reach the pearly gates
He will remember me.

2 O what a shame to kill Him
There on that rugged cross;
But such a death was needed
To rescue all the lost.
His blood was made a ransom
To set the captives free,
I know that I’m included and
He will remember me. [Refrain]

3 At His dear feet I’m kneeling,
My sins I now confess;
I bow in deep repentance,
My soul He’ll surely bless.
My blinded eyes He opens
So that the light I see,
And when I reach the pearly gates,
He will remember me. [Refrain]
