Many Are Called

Judy Mowatt was one of Bob Marley’s backing vocal group, the I-Threes.
I have always loved her voice.  She was Rastafarian for many years
but later became an evangelical Christian.

Great interviews with her HERE & HERE

Many are called, few are chosen / You’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many are called, few are chosen / You’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many say that they are our brothers / There ain’t much to find…
Many say that they are our sisters / There ain’t much to find…
Many come sayin’ brother love, love, love Many come sayin’ sister hail, hail, hail
Many come sayin’ a peace and unity / But there ain’t no peace to find…
Many are called, few are chosen / You’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many are called, few are chosen / You’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many are deceivers / Who profess that they are true believers
Many preach Lord, Lord, many teach / But it’s just way out of reach
Many come sayin’ brother love, love, love Many come sayin’ sister hail, hail, hail
Many come sayin’ a peace and unity / But there ain’t no peace to find…
‘Cause many are called, few are chosen / You’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many are called, few are chosenYou’ve got to be aware of the wolf in sheep clothing
Many are called, but few are chosen…

I Have Seen the Wicked in Great Power…

HalleluJAH

and welcome to the Green Bay inquest !

(looked all over the internet but can’t find full album anywhere for free…
but you can sample
HERE)

Shuddering echoes die and rise again –
Zion comes into focus for a shimmering instant, then vanishes in clouds
above the Babylonian darkness of planet Earth…
If you listen you will hear celestial codes in the interstices of the drum and bass.
Make sure to decipher them correctly so that the message from Almighty JAH can be brought to the people of this fallen planet.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,
came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
he shall set me up upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up
above mine enemies round about me:
therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice:
have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger:
thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies:
for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
I had fainted,
unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.

[Psalm 27 KJV]

Land of Love

Sons of Light (1976)

Land of love… Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…
Everyday, I pray to JAH above
to take us home, to the land of love
Oh no, money shall not lead our life
only the Way is just, to live and not die…

That’s where we all should go now, that’s where we all should be
All of Jah Jah children, and all in unity, all in unity.

At the land love, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…

JAH is the light, shining… around His universal glow
He fills our cup in the morning, to take us where we want to go…

That’s where we all should go now, that’s where we all should be
All of Jah Jah children, and all in unity, all in unity

At the land love, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…

We want to go to the, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…

Beyond  Land of Love

School of Soft Knox

By way of closure to my recent Abyssinian musings, I offer my loyal connectees this doctrinally reformed limerick for their elect delectation.
(Of course, no Presbyterian has to ask what millenarian means…)

A sober and staid Presbyterian
was distrustful of thoughts millenarian.
After smoking some bud,
He awoke with a thud;
in his sleep he’d become Rastafarian.
