I rise up early this morning and I make few stretch yes Thank Jah I'm not feeling any pain
I looked in the mirror and I'm not getting any younger
So swiftly time is passing by
And so I turn to the Father for health and strength is my desire
its not many men live to see these age of gray

Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great
Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great,
Jah is great, Jah is Great.

He's greater than everything yes He's greater than anything yes
He's greater than who you think he is
Greater than you and me greater than man you see
He's greater than what you think he is

Jah is great, Jah is great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great
Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great

Jah is great, Jah is great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great
Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great, Jah is Great
Jah is Great, Jah is Great
He's higher than I the greatest of all and Jah name I will call
Continually, continually
Higher than I the greatest of all and Jah name I will Call
Continually, continually In my Going out and my coming in yes In my going out and my coming in
In my Going out and my coming in.

We're trodding leaving Babylon aint no looking back
and when we're tired we take a rest
when we're hungry jah will provide
yes he will provide Rastafari will provide

Track Name: Fix The Roof
When the rain falls my rooftop leaks
go and call the carpenter and tell him
just to come here right away....

Fix the roof while the sunshine
don't you wait until it rains
Fix the roof while the sunshine
don't you wait until it rains

For it will rain and when it rain you cannot
stop the rain falling down through my rooftop
over my head and falling into my bed you got to

Fix the roof while the sunshine
don't you wait until it rains no, no
Fix the roof while the sunshine
don't you wait until it rains

My woman and child they got to go next door
where its warm and dry I felt so bad inside you got to
Fix the roof while the sun shine
don't you wait until it rains
Fix the roof while the sun shine
don't you wait until it rains
It will rain, It will rain, It will rain, It will rain

My woman and child they got to go next door where its warm and dry I felt so bad inside you got to
Fix the roof while the sun shine
don't you wait until it rains
Fix the roof while the sun shine
don't you wait until it rains
It will rain, It will rain, It will rain, It will rain

When the rain falls my rooftop leaks
go and call the carpenter and tell him
just to come here right away......
Track Name: Again and Again
Again and again, again and again
Again and again, again and again
Kings and Queens home in Africa
Prince and princess in Africa
We living royally in Africa before the big ship came
and took us away
Before the big ship came and took us away
Now we are the victim of a certain kind of system
We are slaves buried to the grave
Used like tools and then refuse
But Jah, Jah give us the power and Jah, Jah show us the glory
Again and again, again and again,
Again and again, again and again

Now give us the key that could open any door
That freedom key that could open any door
But Jah, Jah give us the power and Jah, Jah show us the glory
Again and again, again and again,
Again and again, again and again

Kings and Queens home in Africa
Prince and princess in Africa
We living royally in Africa before the big ship came
and took us away
Before the big ship came and took us away
Now we are the victim of a certain kind of system
We are slaves buried to the grave
Used like tools and then refuse
But Jah, Jah give us the power and Jah, Jah show us the glory
Again and again, again and again,
Again and again, again and again
Jah ,Jah give us the power and Jah, Jah show us the glory again
and again
Track Name: I gave You Rose
“Great retro blues style introduction. The verse transition was tight and the genre went from R&B blues to Reggae. The act is solid and their album is consistent. i feel this is the best yet I have heard from this act. might not be a hit song but has a great mix and a nice calming sound that many should appreciate and want to listen to.”

The extravagant intro is really interesting and very appealing. I like how after the very 21st century intro it turns into smooth reggae music. The steady beat in the background works well and the tempo and instruments used are in the traditional reggae style. I really like the groovy style that this song portrays and the surprise element of what is going to happen next. The song has a vague chorus and a bit of repetition which gives in consistency and substance.”

“This track makes me what to get high and reflect on life. This track is wonderful as is. The song currently playing is mellow, mind turning, full of questions and feeling. This song gives nothing more than good vibes. I could listen to this on repeat all day.”

“The moment you hear this melody, from the trumpet you begin to feel great and your in a nice cool vibe. I love the way that this music artist expresses his words. There is also a backing vocalist. They do a great job highlighting certain words. I think that this is a great song and would be a song many would like.”
