What a Life!

Oct 11, 2005

The gospel is not for Sunday morning
Sunday morning alone
Each and everyday that the Lord had made
We have to give thanks and praise the Lord
Almighty Father, papa never tire
‘A whole heap of blessings Him load I and I
Give I pikini and plenty dollar
Papa never tire make we give Him the praise

Chorus:
Mma mma}2x
Onye oma
Imeela
Mma mma}2x
Mma mma Jesus
Onye ebere

I woke up early this morning not knowing what to say
I thought and thought about the good, good things He has
done for me
I thought about my lovely children
I thought about my pretty wife
All I could think of to say was ‘thank you, Jesus’

Chorus:

When we get to heaven, I know I’ll see Jesus,
Paul and Silas and Abraham
The whole a dem will be there
Many, many questions I want to ask
Many things I want to say
But first of all I will go to Him and say, ‘thank you Jesus’

Chorus:

I have a question
Give me the answer}3x
Tell me the one who make you fat and nice – Jesus
Tell me the one who make you fresh and young – Jesus
Tell me the one who make you prosperous - Jesus
Ready me ready [i.e. I’m ready]
Gone me gone [i.e I’m taking off]
C’mmon everybody make we give Him the praise

Chorus…

What a t’ing}3x
What a t’ing, What a wonderful t’ing
That a God you cannot see will answer when you call
What a t’ing
What a wonderful t’ing

What a t’ing} 3x
What a ting, what a wonderful t’ing
That a God you cannot see will pick you if you fall
What a t’ing
What a wonderful t’ing
What a t’ing, what a t’ing

He said
Though you may not see me
Every time you call my name
I will be there for your

Jesus is real
He’s real to me
He’s not far away
Like many people think
Every morning, every night (hmm)
He speaks to me (He’s within me)
Every day and night (hmm)
He’s by my side
Get in touch with him and make your good time roll

Upon your mark, you better get set
Upon your mark, you better get set
They that kneel before God
Shall stand before men
In case you never know
This a the man call Buchi
So me sit down upon the rhythm
Like a lizard upon limbs
Ride it from the top onto the very last drop
Make the people know say ina the church of God
Big things a gwan [i.e big things are going on]
Blind eyes them open, cripple walking
A whole heap of miracles the Lord is doing
Out of compassion, showing you attention
[He] want to make you know say Him a the ever present
One.

Though you may not see me…

Chorus:
Oh what a life!
Jesus Christ has bought for me
Oh what a price!
He went to the cross to pay for me
And now I have dominion over strife and sin
I sing to the dead and they live again
Oh what a life!

Now listen up my brethren as I always say
Life is what we have
Love is what we live
We’re walking in the covenant of Abraham
Separated by the calling of the Lord
The seed of Jehovah is alive in me
I’m begotten of the Word of the Lord
Take it or leave it am born of the Spirit
And His love is shed abroad ina me heart

Chorus

Said my eyes seen the glory of God
I cannot tell you no lie
Halle, Halle, halleluyah
Glory, glory, glory to the Lord

Oh, what a life!
Jesus Christ has bought for me
Oh what a price!
He went to the cross to pay for me
And now I sing my brand new song of liberty
I didn’t have to pay for it
Oh, what a life!

You’re the great I Am, bright and morning star
Hoooooo…

All the days of my life I will sing your praises
Halleluyah!
You’re the First Begotten of the Most High God
Halleluyah!
This Jesus must be honoured in our lives today
Halleluyah!
No other God who lives and never dies
Halleluyah!
You’re the three in one, you’re the one in three
Halleluyah!
Jehovah, you’re so good, you’re so beautiful
Halleluyah!
You have said to us that ‘it is well’
Halleluyah!
Me a go dub it in the morning, dub it every time
(in praises to your name, oh Lord)
Halleluyah!
We are go dub it in the morning, dub it every time
(in praises to your name, oh Jah)
Halleluyah!
You’re the First Begotten Son of the Most High God

The grace of me Lord Jesus Christ and the love of the Almighty
And the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit is with you!
The things that you do, no man can ever do
The way that you think no man thinks
Except he that has the Holy Spirit of God

You are wise
Young man you are wise
You are wise
Young girl you are wise
You are wise
Young man you are wise
You are wise
Young girl your are wise

What was hidden from the wise of old
The Lord has opened to you
What a revelation of the mind of the Lord unto you!
That’s why you are so different now
That’s why you are wise

You are wise…
Wisdom and strength are the manifestation of the children of God
Children of God
Stop depending on yourself…
Human understand could a let you down
Wisdom cometh from the knowledge of the word
and not experience
You could be as old as my grand papa clock
But with your head like a block
That’s why we are so different now
That’s why we are so wise
We are wise because our Father is wise.

Scripture meditation a fe (ie can) make you wise
Anything me chant it a fe end with [ais]
Don’t let the devil tell you no lies
This is one thing wey we can’t comprise
Tell you the truth me na go tell you no lies
Without Christ your spirit is paralyzed
You spit ina the sky, it a go fall in na you eyes
[ie if you spit at the sky, it will fall in your eyes]

This is brand new faith-filled vibes
With some big toonz
It’s big Recky, big daddy with some big toonz
About to take you to a brand new level
We’re here to lift up His name and to cast out the devil

Have they said you’re the best, better than the rest
Hold on for a minute make we put it to test
Whether curse, whether flatter, what does it matter?
Friendship with the world is enmity with Jah

Chorus:
Beware the praises of men
Never, never swallow the praises of men
Beware the praises of men
If a man didn’t make you, then a man cannot break you
Beware the praises of men
Flatter them a flatter till your life them a scatter
Beware the praises of men
Take it in your mouth and then you quickly spit out

I know my God didn’t make me a failure
With the word of God I decorate my interior
Anything them say I consider inferior
To the counsel of the Lord
So quickly spit it out
Whether curse, whether flatter, what does it matter?
The least in the kingdom is still far above
Watch it when they praise you
Rejoice when they curse you
Friendship with the world is enmity with Jah

Even the people in the dancehall know
Say we have good music in the church
Play good music till them run back
Recky D and Buchi bwai say so

Can’t understand why you smile in my face
And stab me in the back
You wonder how I live in plenty while you living in lack

You love my music but you hate my Jesus
His presence in my life puts prosperity in us
You wonder how we live big and talk big
It’s not my fault; it runs in my family genes, you dig?
The Lord has blessed me, the world can’t stress me
I’m living on top, the Holy Ghost has possessed me

Them call you idiot, stupid, fanatic and wicked
Foolish, bombo, waka, and dummy!
Whether curse, whether flatter, what does it matter?
You don’t need them flatter when you know say you are blessed.

The Lord my God has given you the city
To you and you and you and you and you
He had given all the land
It doesn’t matter what is standing in the way
Hear what the Spirit says
Sing, sing, sing
To the Lord a new song

Chorus:
Sing, sing, sing Jericho must come down
You don’t feel like singing
Sing, sing, sing Jericho must come down
It doesn’t matter how you feel
Sing, sing, sing Jericho must come down
As in the days of Joshua
Do believe me when I tell you make you
Sing, sing, sing Jericho must come down

Seven days they marched around this Jericho wall
The seventh time on the seventh day
They let out a shout and the wall came tumbling down
Sing to the Lord a new song

Chorus:

The tides are high and the sea is so rough
But the treasure must be found
You’re bowling and scooping and navigating the waters of life
It doesn’t matter what is standing in the way
Hear what the Spirit says
Sing, sing, sing to the Lord a new

Fall…fall down} xxx

Play reggae music
Me I go play it each and every time
Me I go dub it for Jesus, dub it each and every day
Crowd of people come make we do the reggae, Jesus style today

Many signs He gave to us
Just so that we might know
When He shall come
He said the day and the hour no man knows
But the children of the light shall know
The season when the Lord shall come

The saints are marching
Won’t you come join we?
Forward to the New Jerusalem

Left, right…
When the nation Israel come together and live as one
Then you know the end is come
When the king of Babylon shall rebuild his wasted place
Then you now the end is come
When the gospel of the Lord shall be taken to every nation
Then you know the end is come
You see the beginning of sorrow like Jesus spoke about on the mountain
Then you know the end is come
Iniquity shall abound and the love of many are waxing cold
Then you know the end is come
When the beast shall declare himself the king ina the holy place
Then you know the end is come

He said behold I come quickly
Rewarding every man
According as his works shall be

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!!
killing all the prophets that I sent to you
Halleluyah, He shall come
Where are they that were mocking me?
Asking, ‘when will this your Jesus come?
Halleluyah, He shall come
Like the lightening from the east that shines unto the west
Halleluyah, He shall come
When my Lord shall appear in the sky
Buchi bwai, me I go run and meet Him there
Halleluyah, He shall come
Like the lightening from the east that shines unto the west
Halleluyah, He shall come
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to every nation for
a witness
And then the end shall come
Halleluyah, He shall come
