Our Turn Now Lyrics

Almighty God, we acknowledge
Our dependence upon Thee
And beg for Thy blessings upon us
Our parents, our teachers and our country

Good evening, this is Charlene Lewis for the 6 o' clock news
Today, June 25, 1962, the Supreme Court has ruled
That school prayer and Bible reading will cease
In all public school systems
It is now official, God has been removed from
The classroom in the United States of America

Us, our parents, our teachers, our country

Us, our parents, our teachers and our country
Us, our parents, our teachers and our country

The ball got dropped in '62
They wouldn't let children pray in school
Violent crime began to rise
The grades went down and the kids got high

Free love, gay rights, no absolutes
Abortion on demand
Brought VD, AIDS and no morality

Today, no one knows right from wrong
There's blood on people's hands
World, you had your turn at bat
Now stand back and see

That it's our turn now
Something's gonna change
We're gonna bind the devil at every hand
By the power of Jesus' name

Well, it's our turn now, think it no surprise
When the gates of hell come crashing down
And you begin to see the church arise

The Supreme Court said, "No God at all"
With the Ten Commandments on their wall
God's word in the library won't appear, no, no, no way
We have a religious apartheid here

Humanism, atheism, no Bible, our consciences have died
We need to seek our God and call His name
The church triumphant's still alive and we're gonna turn the tide
'Cause with boldness and conviction, we proclaim

That it's our turn now
Something's gonna change
We're gonna bind the devil at every hand
By the power of Jesus' name

Well, it's our turn now, think it no surprise
When the gates of hell come crashing down
And you begin to see the church arise

Arise and shine for the light has come
It's time to lift the name of Jesus high
Arise and shine for the light has come
It's time to lift the name of Jesus high

Arise and shine for the light has come
It's time to lift the name of Jesus high
Arise and shine for the light has come
It's time to lift the name of Jesus high

Yes, it's our turn now
Something's gonna change
We're gonna bind that devil at every hand
By the power of Jesus' name

It's our turn now, think it no surprise
When the gates of hell come crashing down
You begin to see the church arise, yeah

It's our turn now, it's no surprise
To see those gates of hell crash down
When you begin to see the church arise
