Matthew 27:38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

Mark 15:27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

Luke 23:32 & 33 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Luke 23:39 - 43 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Three crosses stood on Calv’ry’s hill

Surrounded by a mob,

Two crosses bore two dying thieves

And one the Lamb of God.

Two crosses bore two dying thieves

Who justly suffered shame,

The one cross bore God’s sacrifice,

The Lamb for sinners slain.

One thief received the dying Lamb,

Repented of his sin,

The other one refused to hear,

And would not enter in.
