Don’t Kill The Messenger

v1
THE PROPHET JEREMIAH
TRIED TO WARN THEM ALL
FOR THIS THEY TRIED TO KILL HIM
NOT HEEDING GOD’S ┬áCALL
TO CHANGE THEIR HARD HEARTED
IDOL WORSHIPING WAYS
THEY TRIED TO STOP THE MESSAGE
JUST LIKE THEY DO TODAY

v2
YOU CAN LOCK US IN A PRISON
AS THEY DID IN DAYS OF OLD
BUT PROPHESY’S FULLFILLED
AS IN SCRIPTURE IT WAS TOLD
YOU CAN’T CHANGE THE FACTS
NOR THE TRUTH TO A LIE
LIKE A FIRE IN OUR BONES
WE HAVE TO TESTIFY

v3
PREACHERS KEEP ON PREACHING
CHRISTIANS WITNESS ON
AS PURSECUTION COMES
TRUTH WILL STILL BE TOLD
THEY’LL ACCUSE AND SAY YOU’RE JUDGING
AS YOU WITNESS TO THEM
YOU CANNOT BURY TRUTH
AND YOU CAN’ T JUSTIFY THE SIN

CHORUS
A FRUIT BEARING TREE
WILL BE WHAT IT WILL BE
A BIBLE READING SAINT
WILL PROCLAIM WHAT THEY READ
YOU CAN’T TWIST IT NOR RESIST IT
THE WORD IS BLACK OR WHITE
DON’T KILL THE MESSENGER
FOR TRYING TO STEER YOU RIGHT
