Remember Me


They bound me in leather and a cat-of-nine tails
Was raked across my flesh and bone.
I'm a thief and a liar, and I'm payin' the price,
And I've got not one to blame it on.

When I tried to get up life would kick me back down.
Now I'm hangin' from this highest tree.
My accusers are calling from the mocking crowd,
"You're here to face eternity!"

Remember me!
When you enter your Kingdom, Lord, remember me!
Remember me!
When you enter your Kingdom, Lord, remember me!

There's a man here beside me who's done no wrong
But still they choose to crucify.
You're the King of a nation, You're the chosen One,
And You're hangin' here with me to die.
All the soldiers are laughing, "Won't you save yourself,
O, King, if you were meant to be?"
And the eyes of the rulers glaring up at You,
Unaware You'll set this captive free.

Remember me!
When you enter your Kingdom, Lord, remember me
Remember me!

Remember Me lyrics by Bryan Duncan
