Not only do I create and perform musical works with all my heart and soul, I'm at least as passionate about writing down my thoughts and feelings. Reasoning, meditating and analysing is all part of this and by putting it down in words Jah has enabled me to share it with others.

Waking Up With A Song

Greetings!

I am one of these people who sleep with sounds, that is to say, I have some sounds on very softly when I am sleeping. Often these sounds are musical works. But usually, the sounds come in the form of an interview, a lecture, a documentary, so I will go to sleep while being fed with information. Using a playlist, I make sure that the sounds continue to be there.

This morning, I woke up while a certain documentary ended. It ended with a beatiful song. Usually, I'm only into Reggae while I can appricilove some electronic vibes every now and then, too. None of that in this one, though.

The song had some very nice words. "Give Me Yesus", it said, and: "You can have the world but give me Yesus".

It touched me deeply, for some reason. I have the song ringing through my head, and I just wanted to share this one with you.

You see, that song had the most important truth one can ever engage integrated in the lyrics. Troubles, curses, fightings, fussings, arrogance, racism, elitism, power-tripping warmongers all over the place, in "this world".

The Good Lord God JAH Rastafari said, while He was on this earth in the flesh in Yesus Kristos Who is JAH Himself, "What does it profit a man, to gain the whole world, but lose his soul in hell?".

And it can be, sometimes, like "this world" is all there is. You see people dem fighting over everything they can possibly fight over. Not over the truth, though. It's only about "self esteem" and more of that. "Self Esteem" meaning "I am holier/tuffer than you".

This is where that one line of the song keeps ringing through my head: "You can have this world, but give me Yesus".

Some people think that they have truly gained this world. You see them walking around, pretending to be a whole lot of something, while there are others who literally worship what is only their fellow man. Some people drive in big cars, in order to boast about their riches to their unfortunate fellow human beings, whatever race they may be.

Yes, this is where that one line of the song keeps ringing through my head: "You can have this world, but give me Yesus".

I wonder what my neighbors were thinking while I was singing the tune under the shower... It was different then the usual bass experience, and yet it is not.

You can have this world, but give me Yesus.

One Love,
Messian Dread (Dec 3, 2005)
