Don’t Shoot the Messenger
The prophets of old ---- Spoke the Word, - Convincing men of sin
The kings were told ---- You’d better turn, - or face the fix you’re in
And when they didn’t like what they heard – they turned an evil eye!
And when they killed ---- The man of God, - They heard the prophet’s cry
In Him there is blessing and liberty. Forgiveness is His way
In Him there’s a ransom for you and me, new life everyday
Don’t shoot the messenger; you know I bring good news
If you feel the fear of God, You know what you must choose
Don’t shoot the messenger (or – We are the Messenger), my message - don’t refuse
Just embrace the love of God, there’s nothing you can lose
When Christ was killed ----- Then raised again, The Holy Ghost came down
Disciples turned ----- Apostles then, - about to gain their crown
And when they shared what the Lord had done – they knew they could die
Those that killed ---- the martyrs heard, - the bold apostles’ cry
You & I ---- In this room, - ask ourselves today
Will we hear ---- Or face our doom, - C’mon what do you say?
And when you don’t like what you hear – don’t turn an evil eye
Just believe ---- the man of God, - Messenger will cry
