The day you held my hand and
Whispered in my ear
You told me of your journey
You told me of your care
You told me you had to go
Into the wilderness
To be ridiculed, tested and tried
In that holy space
The day you kissed my cheek
And told me not to worry
That it was willed,
You had to go
The cross you had to carry,
You said you would be back soon
That I should fast and pray
You would be strengthened
By my prayer
On that day
How sincerely I prayed
I held you close
I kissed your hands
I cried at your feet
And as I watched
You walked away
I beheld the glory
That led you there
That led you away
Into the wilderness to
Fast and pray
In that blessed day.
It was a glorious sight!!
Magnolia of gold
With essence of white
Favour of God
I got up this morning and got a cheque
I went to the bank to get some cash
I went upstairs instead of joining the queue
And came out of there in a flash.
I covered my bills and got some food
I gave some to the beggar on the street
I checked my account and got in a good mood
Because the favour of God is on my life
He allowed me to give someone a treat.
I decided to give back to Jehovah
Because He allowed me to lift my head and be glad
I went to church to seek the Saviour
Favour now rests on me so I am no longer sad. Psalms 30
Can't Come How
Yuh cut di throat a di man and woman
Throw dem inna bush like dem a dead dog
All because dem try treat yuh like human
Something rise up inna yuh fi kill dem off
Yuh not human? Eehn. Yuh not part a di race?
Dat is what everybody asking now
Yuh humanity gaan without a trace
Yes people frighten. We all asking: How?
How yuh go explain how yuh come to dis?
How yuh convince yuhself dat yuh is right?
How yuh doan see dis as di crisis it is?
How yuh go to bed and sleep out di night?
And how wi fi talk bout solution now
People cyan treat yuh like human being: How?
