Now It's Our Turn Lyrics

We Are Messengers contemporary

Chorus:
Mercy's not a pretty word
It gets down in the dirt
For better or for worse
And sometimes it's gonna hurt
To love without reserve
But Jesus did it first
And now it's our turn
Now it's our turn

Now It's Our Turn Lyrics

As sure as death and taxes
You know I'm gonna let You down
And even though I deserve them
Those stones are still on the ground

So many times You've forgiven me
Even while I was Your enemy
Yeah more than just 7 times 70
I can see it finally

Mercy's not a pretty word
It gets down in the dirt
For better or for worse
And sometimes it's gonna hurt
To love without reserve
But Jesus did it first
And now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn

The gospel sure gets messy
We've all got some things to hide
But there is something beautiful
When we bring it into the light

Mercy's not a pretty word
It gets down in the dirt
For better or for worse
And sometimes it's gonna hurt
To love without reserve
But Jesus did it first
And now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn

Are we ready to turn the other cheek?
Are we ready to bless our enemies?
Are we ready to love like Jesus?
Are we ready to give it all for free?
Are we ready to be a family?
Are we ready to love like Jesus?

Mercy's not a pretty word
It gets down in the dirt
For better or for worse
And sometimes it's gonna hurt
To love without reserve
But Jesus did it first
And now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn
Now it's our turn

Are we ready to turn the other cheek?
Are we ready to bless our enemies?
