Don’t Shoot the Messenger

V. 1
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
V. 2
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

(Bridge) (Chorus)
V. 3
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

(Bridge) (Chorus) (Solo) (Chorus)
