Lyrics

Maybe you’re not like me
Maybe we don’t agree
Maybe that doesn’t mean
We gotta be enemies

Maybe we just get brave
Take a big leap of faith
Call a truce so me and you
Can find a better way

Let’s take some time, open our eyes, look and listen (yeah)
We’re gonna find we’re more alike than we are different (yeah)

Why does kindness seem revolutionary
When did we let hate get so ordinary
Let’s turn it around, flip the script
Judge slow, love quick
God help us get revolutionary

(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)
Let’s get, Let’s get
(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)

I’m turning the TV down
Drowning their voices out
Cause I believe that you and me
Can find some common ground

See maybe I’m not like you
But I’ll walk a mile in your shoes
If it means I might see
The world the way you do

Let’s take some time, open our eyes, look and listen
We’re gonna find we’re more alike than we are different

Why does kindness seem revolutionary
When did we let hate get so ordinary
Let’s turn it around, flip the script
Judge slow, love quick
God help us get revolutionary

(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)
Let’s get, Let’s get
(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)

What would Jesus do
He would love first
He would love first
What would Jesus do
He would love first
He would love first
So we should love first

Why does kindness seem revolutionary
When did we let hate get so ordinary
Let’s turn it around, flip the script
Judge slow, love quick
God help us get revolutionary

(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)
Let’s get, Let’s get
(Whoa oh)
Revolutionary
(Whoa oh)

About This Song

From Josh - “Revolutionary” is all about kindness. I believe that kindness matters. It’s so easy to get caught up in all of the negativity we see in the world and on the news, and this song is a reminder that we are called to more than that. We’re called to love as Christ has loved us. I am so encouraged by the acts of kindness I’ve seen recently, even amidst a worldwide pandemic, even in an election year. In many ways, our struggles are actually bringing us together. We’re learning that we all have a lot more in common than we thought, and it’s beautiful to see the ways people are serving each other. The lyrics are a prayer for God, through us, to start a revolution of kindness. Will you join us?
