This is the 12th track of my album "Showcase".

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 vibes.

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 on.

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
Of death

I will fear no evil
For Thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff
They comfort me.

Thou preparest
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.

Surely goodness
And mercy
Shall follow me
All the days of my life

And I will dwell
In the house of the LORD for ever.
