Paint the Town Red
The Mission Bell album version:
You know I feel there's something
'Bout to break now
You know I feel there's a city
Here to take now
And it's not so tough
For these ordinary hands
When we trust someone
With extraordinary plans

You know i feel this
Heart's about to break now
Cos I can see what
The devil's trying to take now
We've got this leather backed
Book and a freedom cry
And we're an army of God
Who are ready to die

You give us hope where hope is gone
You fill the streets with a holy song
We're gonna paint this big old town red

Oh, here we come, here we come
Here we come

You know I feel this sky's
About to break now
You know I feel our city's
Gonna shake now
And we hear You call
Every woman, every man
"Ring the mission bell"
And storm the gates of hell

Miracles run from street to street
Rise up church for a holy meet
We're gonna paint this big old town red
We're gonna paint this big old town red
With the blood of Jesus

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Oh, here we come, here we come
Here we come

Ring, ring, ring the mission bell
Sing, sing, sing, we've got a story to tell
Ring, ring, ring the mission bell
Sing, sing, sing, we've got a story to tell



Now Is The Time Live At Willow Creek album version:
Spoken:
Hey, hey, hey
Yeah, yeah
Are you ready to sing
Oh, here we come, here we come
Here we come
Everybody sing
Oh, here we come
Hey, hey
Here we come, here we come

You know I feel there's something
'Bout to break now
You know I feel there's a city
Here to take now.
And it's not so tough
For these ordinary hands
When we trust someone
With extraordinary plans

You know i feel this
Hearts about to break now
Cos I can see what
The devil's trying to take now
We've got this leather backed
Book and a freedom cry
And we're an Army of God
Who are ready to die

You give us hope where hope is gone
You fill the streets with a holy son
We're gonna paint this big old town red.

Oh, here we come, here we come
Here we come
Everybody scream - spoken

You know I feel this sky's
About to break now
You know I feel our city's
Gonna shake now
And we hear You call
Every woman, every man
"Ring the mission bell"
And storm the gates of hell.

Miracles run from street to street
Rise up church for a holy meet
We're gonna paint this big old town red
We're gonna paint this big old town red
With the blood of Jesus!

Yeah, yeah

We're gonna paint this big old town red
We're gonna paint this big old town red
We're gonna paint this big old town red
