Light for My Path Daily Devotion- Words from the Cross
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:43 ESV)
Hymn ELH 337:1,3 Our Blessed Savior Seven Times Spoke
Our blessed Savior seven times spoke
When on the cross our sins He took
And died lest we should perish.
Let us His last and dying words
In our remembrance cherish.
Now to the contrite thief He cries:
“Thou, verily, in Paradise
Shalt meet Me ere tomorrow.”
Lord, take us to Thy kingdom soon
Who linger here in sorrow.
Jesus, my Savior, as You forgave the thief who hung next to You, and promised him eternal life, forgive my sins and give me confidence that through faith in You as my only Savior, I will also be with You in paradise. Amen.
