is the 12th track of my album
Where the previous track dealt directly
with these buildings called
"church", this one deals with
something they do inside: singing psalms.
In fact, the lyrics of this track come
straight out of the Bible. It's a
word-for-word musical reading from the 23rd
Psalm. It was recorded in the middle of the
night, with the Book of Books opened up
under what is truly experienced as Jah
Don't expect no church organ, though.
Don't expect any light weight rhythm either.
The tempo is slow, but there's a lot going
The drums play a rather complicated
rhythm on the snare drum, the bass drum hits
on much more than just the whole counts, and
the bass is deep!
Yeah, you know
Some a dem read in the book of dead
But I man read in the
Book Of Life!
The LORD [is] my shepherd
I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
For his name's sake, oh well,
For his name's sake: JAH!
And even though
I walk through the valley of the shadow
I will fear no evil
For Thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff
They comfort me.
A table before me
In the presence of mine enemies
The presence of mine enemies
Thou anointest my head
with oil, oil, yes
My cup runneth over.
Shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell
In the house of the LORD for ever.
