REPENT
Verse 1 ( E minor, G D )
You should be trembling before me in fear
For the Good Book of faith is abundantly clear
For the blaspheme you must immediately repent
As my hands are tied as the sentence is a painful death ( D chord[B-string variation 1st &3rd)

Verse 2
The Breath of God descends as a stream of brimstone
The Earth burns a red fire and fierce winds do blow
To go above is your eternal punishment
To be clear, it’s a slow death not merely banishment

Verse 3
Get on your knees now and beg for His forgiveness
The public audience before me you must take witness
Must repent to avoid this harsh but proper sentence
Asked many times more than require, see no repentance

notes: 1st line upbeat, rest pickup pause after me (8th down strum beat)

Chorus1 :G D F C

Exiled to above, right away you’re to be sent
There is no defense, except repent, no argument
None survive where the acid , red rain killed all
Found guilty, marched there before end of night fall ( take the breath )
You are going straight to hell; you don’t get it,
You don’t get it
Must join the Order, or heresy you’ll commit
So repent, repent, repent, repent

Verse 4
As my granddaughter, you will not receive favor
The Good Book requires all to go above if a traitor
Repent, we will precede with honor your coming of age
Repent, this childish war that you against the Order wage

Verse 6
You ignore your mother as she begs and pleads
You father not a word his silence means he agrees
You speak only of blue skies, green grass, strong trees
You are guilty, arrest her, your sentenced, no longer free
( emphasis individual words last line dramatic effect)

Chorus1 :G D F C

Exiled to above, right away you’re to be sent
There is no defense, except repent, no argument
None survive where the acid , red rain killed all
Found guilty, marched there before end of night fall ( take the breath )
You are going straight to hell; you don’t get it,
You don’t get it
Must join the Order, or heresy you’ll commit
So repent, repent, repent, repent

Chorus1 :G D F C

Exiled to above, right away you’re to be sent
There is no defense, except repent, no argument
None survive where the acid , red rain killed all
Found guilty, marched there before end of night fall ( take the breath )
You are going straight to hell; you don’t get it,
You don’t get it
Must join the Order, or heresy you’ll commit
So repent, repent, repent, repent
