Well I saw the burglar, as with a wicked grin
He stole the souls held captive by sin
That cunning thief poured out his blood
The fires of Hell drowned in the flood
Where there was burning he made it snow
You see Hell froze over a long time ago

He took the wood on which he was slain
Made him a ladder to climb out again
And as he rose what treasure did he bring?
He took the victory and he took the sting!

Worthy oh worthy is the one who steals
Those caught up in the Devil's deals
Worthy oh worthy is the one who breaks
The rule of law for mercy's sake

The strong man did not understand
How his hands were tied
Or how he'd be plundered
The day the burglar died
