"REVOLUTIONARY CHILDREN OF GOD"

Intro: "Revolution! For Jesus!"

-------Over top of:
"We have a revolution, and we are a
revolution, and this is a revolution!"

Chorus
The revolutionary children of God
Have been around a long time,
From Abel to the Prophets,

["Get rid of the old way!"]

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse 1
Along with Jesus and His bearded,
Long-haired, bare-footed rebels,
And their followers from then 'til today,
And their followers from then 'til -today.

Verse 2
All the famed reformers, world-changers,
Pioneers, martyrs, radical revolutionaries,
I said, all the famed reformers, world-
Changers, pioneers, martyrs, radical
Revolutionaries were rebels,
Were rebels...

Verse 3
Against the rotten, decadent, decrepit,
Hypocritical, self-righteous, inflexible,
Affluent, self-satisfied, proud, stubborn,
Disobedient, blind, blood-thirsty,
Godless, dead, selfish, biased, unchangeable,
Degenerating System of their day.

[Repeat Chorus X2]

Rap
We started with an R to an E then a V and an O,
Just a bunch of crazy kids and our father MO;
Then to an L and a U and to a T-I-O-N,
Had a message to the nations,
That the world's gonna end!
A Revolution for Jesus is what our Family's about,
It has a special meaning, no, it's not just a shout.
Now years later we've got the same warning to give:
"Repent! Turn to Jesus, your sins He can forgive."
You know time is running short and we've still got lots to do,
So let's dig in, 'cause, after all, we are a chosen few.

[Repeat Chorus]

"I don't want peace with the System!"
Were rebels, were rebels!

[Two times]
